Oakley (1979) suggested its development meant an almost complete re-writing of the evolution and cultural emergence of the human species.Desmond Clark (1979) wrote that were it not for radiocarbon dating, "we would still be foundering in a sea of imprecisions sometime bred of inspired guesswork but more often of imaginative speculation" (Clark, 1979:7).
Now that I’ve created it, I intend to use it for what in my opinion is interesting information about archaeology.
Radiocarbon dating has been one of the most significant discoveries in 20th century science.
Renfrew (1973) called it 'the radiocarbon revolution' in describing its impact upon the human sciences.
In particular this will include a section on what is often called cult or fringe archaeology.
I'm including also various links to more serious and to my main interest in archaeology, Romano-British archaeology.
