The emergence and widespread distribution of eye fibulae as adornment objects, from the northern provinces of the Roman Empire to northeastern Europe and Scandinavia, as well as their typology have been widely explored.

Currently in Lithuania, a total of eye fibulae dating to the 1st and 2nd centuries are known. The geographical distribution, typology and chronology of these Early Roman Period jewelry artifacts do not present any problem. However, the technology of manufacture of these fibulae has been much less studied. The present article analyzes the technology of manufacture of Prussian series eye fibulae, including the ly unknown specific manufacturing techniques, such as the use of wooden axes to modify the construction of the fibula and make it more durable and long lasting.

Radiocarbon 14 C dating has unambiguously confirmed that the wooden axes are contemporaneous with the time of the use of the fibulae, while observation under the scanning electron microscope has identified wood species used for making the wooden axes.

The X-ray fluorescence spectrometry XRF analysis was used to determine the copper alloys, of which eye fibulae were made. The manufacturing technologies of eye fibulae forging and casting are discussed in the context of analytical and experimental studies. Here we report radiocarbon measurements made on wheat seed tissue Triticum aestivum L.

The give an overview of 75 years of radiocarbon concentration evolution in agricultural plant products. The wheat tissue radiocarbon concentrations follow known pre- and post-bomb radiocarbon records, such as the atmospheric Jungfraujoch, Schauinsland, and NH1 datasets. We propose to use the pre- and post-bomb radiocarbon record of Gatersleben wheat as a reference in forensic investigations, such as the age estimation of paper by analyzing starch used in paper manufacture.

Additionally, an advantage of the record reported here lies in its extensibility by adding new analyses from future harvests. The function and change of global soil carbon C reserves in natural ecosystems are key regulators of future carbon-climate coupling. Microbes play a critical role in soil carbon cycling and yet there is poor understanding of their roles and C metabolism flexibility in many ecosystems. We wanted to determine whether vegetation type and climate zone influence soil microbial community composition fungi and bacteria and carbon resource preference.

We used a biomarker phospholipid fatty acids, PLFAsnatural abundance 13 C and 14 C probing approach to measure soil microbial composition and C resource use, along a —m elevation gradient on Mount Gongga m aslChina. Mount Gongga has a vertical mean annual temperature gradient of 1. Soils were sampled at 10 locations along the gradient capturing distinct vegetation types and climate zones from lowland subtropical-forest to alpine-meadow.

PLFA showed that microbial communities were composed of 2. Soil organic carbon SOC turnover did not vary among three soils we measured from three forest types i. The 14 C values of microbial PLFAs i15, a15,br17 decreased with elevation while those of C, cyC17, and cyC19 did not show much difference among three forest ecosystems.

Bacteria and bacillus represented by C and brC17 showed considerable microbial C metabolism flexibility and tended to use ancient carbon at higher altitudes. Anaerobes represented by cyC17 and cyC19 showed stronger C metabolism selectivity. Our findings reveal specific C source differences between and within soil microbial groups along elevation gradients. Based on the archaeological determination the site was dated to the Early Iron Age.

A complex wooden architecture was observed in the largest tumulus containing inner and outer beam constructions separated by stone blocks. The four longest ringwidth series were synchronized providing a yr-long floating chronology. A wiggle-matching procedure was employed as the 14 C ages were in agreement with their relative position in the tree-ring sequence and concurred with the expected archaeological period. The calibrated age range of the last extant ring is — cal BC The earliest possible felling date of the trees used in the construction was between and BC considering the missing sapwood.

This is the first 14 C dated tree-ring width chronology from the Early Iron Age in Hungary providing a valuable reference for dendroarchaeological studies along the eastern border of the Hallstatt Culture. We investigated two Suyanggae Paleolithic localities 1 and 6. A total of 31 samples 18 localities were analyzed for radiocarbon 14 C ages in three paleolithic cultural horizons of Suyanggae Locality 6 SYG The purpose of this paper is to report all dating of SYG This study demonstrates that archaeological study is important not only for understanding human occupations with their cultural development but also establishing climatic als to which they have been adapted as a part of the human evolutional process.

A laboratory intercomparison project was carried out on 20 annually resolved late-wood samples from the Danish oak record. Further assessment of the accuracy associated with the individual laboratories showed good agreement, indicating that consistent and reliable 14 C measurements well in agreement with each other are produced at the three laboratories. However, the quoted analytical uncertainties appear to be underestimated when compared to the observed variance of differences from the geometric mean of the samples.

This study provides a general quality check of the single-year tree-ring 14 C measurements that are included in the new calibration curve. The radiocarbon 14 C absolute dates generated from this probe excavation show that following the EB III city demise, the site was abandoned for up to a few hundred years before it was resettled in the IBA.

Archaeologists have been using luminescence to date pottery in South America since the late s, inspired by early success in northern Chile.

First, we present a compilation of 94 paired 14 C and luminescence dates from the southern Andes, which reveals discrepancies across a range of contexts and ages. Second, we compare two Bayesian models of sets of 14 C and thermoluminescence TL dates from three ceramic styles in the Azapa Valley, Chile, and the Inca occupation of Mendoza, Argentina.

We find that only the 14 C models produce that agree with expectations based on independent data. Third, we present from a pilot study in Mendoza that dated 6 sherds with 3 luminescence methods each and closely associated 14 C dates. The reasons for disagreement between methods remain unclear, but Andean sediments with low and unstable luminescence sensitivity seem to be an important factor. Even though some luminescence ages are accurate, the clear trend of inconsistent le us to recommend that archaeologists use 14 C rather than luminescence dates to build cultural chronologies.

The paper explores the emergence and development of arable farming in southeastern Norway by compiling and analyzing directly dated cereals from archaeological contexts. By using summed probability distributions of radiocarbon dates and Bayesian modeling, the paper presents the first comprehensive analysis of the directly dated evidence for farming in the region. The models provide a more precise temporal resolution to the development than hitherto presented. The demonstrate that the introduction of arable farming to southeastern Norway was a long-term development including several steps.

Three different stages are pointed out as important in the process of establishing arable farming: the Early and Middle Neolithic, the Late Neolithic, and the Early Iron Age. The Early and Middle Bronze Age in the Carpathian Basin is often viewed as a long period of transition from a dispersed form of land occupation to one of increasing aggregation, ultimately resulting in the formation of tell settlements and large cemeteries. This developmental trajectory remains a legacy of early 20th century archaeology, where the similarity of material culture recovered from cemeteries and settlements was used to develop a multi-linear scheme of progression of regional chronologies tied to specific archaeological cultures.

While typologically conclusive, the recent increase in the availability of radiocarbon determinations suggests that these sequences represent a priori interpretation of social development rather than empirically verified observations.

In order to do so, it is necessary to re-evaluate the existing dataset in order to determine whether the formation of tells was a chronologically contemporary development and whether the regional chronological sequences are supported by independent dating. In this paper we discuss recent developments in documenting the spread of millet across the Eurasian steppes. We emphasize that, despite a recent proposal that millet consumption in southern Siberia can be attributed to the Early Bronze Age i. We also present in full the combined stable isotope and 14 C datasets from the Minusinsk Basin to support this conclusion.

Radiocarbon 14 C is an isotopic tracer used to address a wide range of scientific research questions. However, contamination by elevated levels of 14 C is deleterious to natural-level laboratory workspaces and accelerator mass spectrometer facilities deed to precisely measure small amounts of 14 C.

The risk of contaminating materials and facilities intended for natural-level 14 C with elevated-level 14 C-labeled materials has dictated near complete separation of research groups practicing profoundly different measurements. Such separation can hinder transdisciplinary research initiatives, especially in remote and isolated field locations where both natural-level and elevated-level radiocarbon applications may be useful. This paper outlines the successful collaboration between researchers making natural-level 14 C measurements and researchers using 14 C-labeled materials during a subglacial drilling project in West Antarctica SALSA — Our strict operating protocol allowed us to successfully carry out 14 C labeling experiments within close quarters at our remote field camp without contaminating samples of sediment and water intended for natural level 14 C measurements.

Here we present our collaborative protocol for maintaining natural level 14 C cleanliness as a framework for future transdisciplinary radiocarbon collaborations. The resulting 14 C dates fall into quite a long interval, which in terms of the regional archaeological periodization lasts from the Middle Eneolithic to the Early Iron Age, and in terms of the climatological one corresponds with the Subboreal.
