• How can past diet affect the radiocarbon dating of humans? • How does the ‘Radiocarbon Barrier’ affect our chronologies and what can be done to cross it?
Typically, the syllabus will include the following: • Is there an accurate date for the Tabun C1 Neanderthal?
• What is the earliest reliably dated modern human in Africa?
The scientific basis of each technique will be covered, but the main focus will be on the application of the dating methods to archaeology through examination of case studies.
In particular we will look at how, why and when the scientists have got it wrong, and what archaeologists need to know to spot a dodgy date.• Convey the principles and practical applications of scientific dating methods in archaeology • Outline sources of uncertainty and inaccuracy in dates to enable you to apply principles of chronological hygiene and extract reliable chronologies from published data • Explore the key chronological issues and controversies in archaeology Having successfully completed this module, you will be able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of: The module begins with an introduction of the key concepts.
