Radiocarbon calibration and age estimation

Abstract:

Radiocarbon dating can be applied to archaeological materials which contain radiocarbon from the atmosphere or the oceans. In order to interpret radiocarbon measurements as dates, it is necessary to compare them against measurements on known‐age samples which have been dated by other methods. This allows calibration onto a timescale derived from either dendrochronology or uranium series dating. Multiple analyses can be interpreted through the use of Bayesian statistical methods, allowing for ...
