Working Within the Curves: Examining Issues of Resolution and Accuracy When Using Sea-Level Curves in Archaeological Contexts (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Martin Walker. Thaddeus Bissett.

Sea-level curves have been one of the main tools used within archaeology to understand human settlement patterns in coastal environments. Questions remain, however, about which curve (or curves) are most appropriately used both at different geographic and temporal resolutions. In order to evaluate these differences in resolution, we examine 161 radiocarbon dates from 32 shell rings from across the lower Atlantic and Gulf coasts. We then plot them against a regional high-resolution reconstruction...
