Tree-Ring Dating in Archaeology

Abstract

In recent years the applications of tree-ring dating have greatly expanded in geographic coverage and in scope. The rapid growth of European dendrochronological efforts has resulted in the establishment of absolute tree-ring chronologies and the dating of historical and archaeological structures across northern Europe from Ireland to western Russia. Development of long floating tree-ring chronologies in Europe and the Near East give promise of significant future advances. In North America, particularly in the American Southwest, tree-ring controls have also been extended in time and space and special attention has been focused on the development of new concepts and techniques for archaeological interpretation. Broader applications of dendrochronological data include reconstruction of palaeoclimatic conditions and recalibration of the radiocarbon time-scale.
