Abstract:
Geophysical and archaeological investigations of the Neolithic and Mesolithic offshore Orkney have been conducted over the past 3 years under the Rising Tides Project. This project seeks to contextualise finds within reconstructed palaeo-landscapes. An important element of these reconstructions is the dating of local and regional sealevel rise. Current methods for obtaining and correctly dating cores are being developed by the project and rely on novel vibro-coring techniques. If these prove successful they will have widespread application across a range of Scottish (and other similar) settings and over a range of different time scales. An important element of the tests is obtaining dates from the cores often from material that contains little carbon and thus are not suitable for C14 dating. The project will test the applicability of different dating including C14 in comparison to luminance dating. Richard Bates 2013.
