Earthworks Sites' Radiocarbon Dates -Databases

"A total of 1919 radiocarbon dates for archaeological sites and objects in Kentucky, Ohio and West Virginia has been compiled by the Council For West Virginia Archaeology. These data represent most radiocarbon dates available for the region up to August 1996. The database is presented in a tabular format in ascending order of radiocarbon age. The database includes site numbers, site names, components, time periods, lab numbers, radiocarbon age, sigma, calibrated age and references."
"the radiocarbon database represents many years of cooperation between professional and amateur archaeologists as well as universities, agencies and private consulting firms. It should be stressed that even though this is a final publication this database should be viewed as a working document that will be continuously updated and corrected…"

"a compilation of radiocarbon measurements that indicate the ages of archaeological and vertebrate palaeontological sites in North America. During the 50 years since the method of radiocarbon dating was invented, archaeologists and palaeontologists have invested heavily in this method, acquiring tens of thousands of radiocarbon dates. These dates represent a substantial financial investment, but their potential for developing the chronology of archaeology and palaeontology remains under-utilized and in some respects misused. The dates are widely scattered in published and unpublished sources, and many have not been reported at all. Furthermore, the dates are not all created equal, as they represent the results of analytical methods and techniques that have evolved over a 50-year period."
