What is the difference between "Timber Frame" and "Post and Beam"?

A Timber Frame is cut to fit together like a puzzle through Mortise and Tenon joinery (which locks together and creates a tremendously strong frame) and held together with wooden pegs. No metal is involved in the framing.

Post and Beam frames are typically milled timbers with square-cut ends held together by steel plates and bolts.
