Radiocarbon dating east kilbride
The lab was built in 2009/2010 with funding from the Royal Society and support from various friendly AMS folk from around the world (follow this link to see how it was set up).
We work mainly with small carbonate samples, but can in principle reduce any CO2 that can be introduced into the vacuum line via the ‘cracking’ of sealed glass tubes or needle penetration of septum-sealed vials.
All radiocarbon samples listed here are taken on charcoal or ash and are conventional radiocarbon dates, unless otherwise stated.
All samples are calibrated using CALIB4.4 -the atmospheric terrestrial calibration curve of Stuiver et al. for the MR1 samples, both the atmospheric and marine calibration results are presented.
Calibrated age ranges are from the probability distribution using Method B.
The incorporation of ancient bog oak into a building, no matter how intricately carved or jointed, would immediately become obvious to the chronologist, as would timber renovations.
After all the trials and tribulations of fieldwork over the autumn and winter of 2015/2016 followed by months of lab work, logging the core samples and extracting datable material, at last we have the results of the radiocarbon dates from the first ten study sites!
