Calibrated (super 14) C dates in Central Europe; same as elsewhere?.

J C Freundlich, Burghart Schmidt

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).
