Abstract

A common need in archaeology is for objects and events of interest to be dated, so that they can be arranged in the correct temporal sequence. Here we briefly review several methods available to the archaeologist to assist in age determination of the “target” object or event—comprehensive treatments of the subject are given by Aitken (1990, 1999), Wagner (1998), and Walker (2005).
