Prospects and challenges for high resolution 14C chronologies: New World and Old World investigations
Author(s): Sturt Manning
This paper will present some current work in (i) NE North America (northern Iroquoia), (ii) NW Mexico, and (iii) the East Mediterranean-Caucasus using radiocarbon (14C) dates integrated with archaeological/historical and/or dendrochronological information to try to achieve high-resolution chronologies via Bayesian chronological modelling. The paper will discuss and investigate the potential to achieve much greater precision which, through defining new chronologies, can in turn be transformative for archaeological and historical analysis. But the paper will also consider some of the problems or limitations in such work, and will review the conditions necessary to achieve robust, precise, and accurate chronologies for the past via radiocarbon and Bayesian chronological modelling.
