Chronological methods 8 radiocarbon dating swimming single dating
Chronological dating, or simply dating, is the process of attributing to an object or event a date in the past, allowing such object or event to be located in a previously established chronology.
This usually requires what is commonly known as a "dating method".
Only two, Jarama VI and Zafarraya, were found to contain material that could be reliably dated. The latter is most likely produced by anatomically modern humans.However, two-thirds of dates from the south are radiocarbon dates, a technique that is particularly sensitive to carbon contaminants of a younger age that can be difficult to remove using routine pretreatment protocols.If Akhnaton flourished in -840 and not in -1380, the ceramics from Mycenae found in the palace of Akhnaton are younger by five or six hundred years than they are presumed to be, and the Late Mycenaean period would accordingly move forward by about half a thousand years on the scale of time.I wished to have radiocarbon tests that would clarify the issue.
In both sites, Middle Paleolithic contexts were previously dated by radiocarbon to less than 42 ka cal BP.
