Abstract

The increasing application of the Bayesian approach for the interpretation of radiocarbon dates over the past decade has led to the production of more precise chronologies for archaeological sites. This has highlighted the practical significance of some scientific aspects of radiocarbon dating. The potential importance of one of these, the sources of the carbon component of human bone collagen, is demonstrated by a recent application of radiocarbon dating in medieval Norwich.
