Calibrated 14C Dates in Central Europe - Same as Elsewhere?

  • J C Freundlich (a1) and Burghart Schmidt (a1)

Abstract

14C dating results derived from an absolutely-dated 471-year tree-ring sequence from central European oak show a trend towards somewhat older dates than those for bristleconepine tree rings of the same age, but similar to those for Egyptian historical samples. Differences visible between these trend lines are not relevant considering the standard errors proposed by Clark (1975).
