Antiquity: Project Gallery

Antiquity: Project Gallery | Anthropology, Archaeology, and History | Scoop.it

A 213-year oak tree-ring chronology has been constructed from timbers from several sites from first-millennium AD Constantinople, in particular, from the study of over 2000 samples from harbour installations at Yenikapı, Istanbul (Pekin & Kangal 2007).

 

A tentative dendrochronological placement of the 213-year sequence against other tree-ring series suggests an absolute date range of AD 398–610 for the time-series (Pearson et al. submitted). We report a radiocarbon dating project to provide an independent near-absolute chronological placement for this important chronology.
