British Museum Natural Radiocarbon Measurements VII

  • Harold Barker (a1), Richard Burleigh (a1) and Nigel Meeks (a1)
Extract

Dates listed below are based on measurements made from June 1968 to May 1970 by the liquid scintillation technique using benzene. In general, the experimental procedure is as described previously (Barker, Burleigh, and Meeks, 1969a) with a few changes in detail. Data are now processed by computer using a comprehensive Algol program written by Andrew Barker, King's College, Univ. of London. There is no need to standardize on any particular sample weight and, as the benzene synthesizer can also deal with samples in the range up to the equivalent of 9 gm of carbon in a single synthesis, the amount of sample available is now less critical. However, for older material, a minimum of 1 gm of carbon is required. Another factor contributing to efficiency of operation is the “bomb” technique for sample combustion (Barker, Burleigh, and Meeks, 1969b), also mentioned in the previous date list. Finally, during 1969, an MS20 double collection mass spectrometer was acquired and all dates (but not all those in this list) are now corrected for isotopic fractionation.
