We present here dates for archaeological and geological samples. The dates are based on τ1/2 = 5568 years, using 1950 as the base year. The modern standard was 95% of activity of NBS oxalic acid.
Samples were pretreated, prepared by methane synthesis and counted in a proportional counter. The detailed procedure has been described earlier (Agrawal, Gupta & Kusumgar 1971). We reported minor changes in previous date lists. Quoted errors are based on counting statistics alone. For samples younger than 10,000 years, the error is 1 standard deviation, and for older samples, 2 standard deviations. The dates are not corrected for 13C fractionation. Samples have been arranged alphabetically according to the name of the site.
