Radiocarbon Dates from samples funded by English Heritage between 2003 and 2006, Paperback / softback Book

Paperback / softback

  • Information


This volume holds a datelist of 1100 radiocarbon determinations carried out between 2003 and 2006 on behalf of the Centre for Archaeology of English Heritage.

It contains supporting information about the samples and the sites producing them, a comprehensive bibliography, and two indexes for reference and analysis.

An introduction provides discussion of the character and taphonomy of the dated samples and information about the methods used for the analyses reported and their calibration. The datelist has been collated from information provided by the submitters of the samples and the dating laboratories.

Many of the sites and projects from which dates have been obtained are now published, although developments in statistical methodologies for the interpretation of radiocarbon dates since these measurements were made may allow revised chronological models to be constructed on the basis of these dates.

The purpose of this volume is to provide easy access to the raw scientific and contextual data which may be used in further research.
