Problems with radiocarbon dating the Middle to Upper Palaeolithic transition in Italy
Radiocarbon dating of material from Late Pleistocene archaeological sites is challenging. Small amounts of modern14C-labelled contamination will significantly affect the reliability of dates from the period, producing erroneous results. Recent developments in sample pre-treatment chemistry have shown that problems in reliable age determination during this period are surmountable. In this paper we provide an example of one such case, from the Middle to Upper Palaeolithic transitional site of the...[Show more]
