Abstract

Accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) 14C dating of rock varnish provides minimum-limiting ages for landforms and archaeological artifacts in arid and semiarid lands that are undatable by conventional radiocarbon methods. Experiments on sample collection, the effect of different individuals preparing samples, the influence of different chemical-extraction procedures, the incorporation of carbonate detritus, possible contamination from rock underlying varnish, the role of bio-geochemical erosion of varnish, and other influences reveal procedures that yield reproducible results. -from Authors
