Prehistoric America: comments on some C14 dates

  • G. H. S. Bushnell

Antiquity has recently received some information* of great value in connexion with radiocarbon dating from the advisory committee on the subject set up by the American Anthropological Association and the Geological Society of America. It consists of an historical foreword, a corrected list of dates, a number of reports on specific problems, a summary and a bibliography, partly in typescript and partly on microfilm. The list differs little from the printed one which was distributed to a number of interested people in September 1950, though it contains a few additions and corrections, and the real importance of the material now received lies in the reports and the summary.

* We wish to thank Mr Frederick Johnson, of the Robert S. Peabody Foundation for Archaeology, Andover, Massachusetts, for sending a copy of the manuscript of ‘ Radiocarbon Dating’, which was published as Memoir no. 8, American Antiquity, vol. 17, no. 1, part 2. We hope to publish further articles dealing with dates obtained by the radiocarbon method for the Stone Ages and for the early phases of history and prehistory in the Middle East. ED.
