Robust radiocarbon dating of wood samples by high-sensitivity liquid scintillation spectroscopy in the 50-70 Kyr age range

Hogg, Alan G; Fifield, L Keith; Palmer, Jonathan G; Turney, Christian; Galbraith, Rex


Although high-sensitivity liquid scintillation (LS) spectroscopy is theoretically capable of producing finite radiocarbon ages in the 50,000- to 70,000-yr range, there is little evidence in the literature that meaningful dates in this time period have been obtained. The pressing need to undertake calibration beyond 26 kyr has resulted in the regular publication of 14C results in excess of 50 kyr, yet very little effort has been made to demonstrate their accuracy or precision. There is a paucity...[Show more]
