Abstract

Radiocarbon dating is one of the most important chronological tools applied to archaeology. The technique itself changed the way that archaeologists look at chronology. Instrumental determination of age is superior to estimates based on association, cultural aspects, pottery, and artistic style. Radiocarbon methods have also evolved with time. They have contributed greatly to our understanding of the development of human history and the archaeological record. Some important and recent applications of radiocarbon dating to archaeological studies are presented.
