Despite this she continually uses the c14 dates to create 'absolute' chronologies.
She says this is ok so long as you take into account the correction factors from dendrochronology.
Approaching archaeological techniques and artifacts from an interpretive viewpoint, the series looks in detail at specific classes of artifacts that have contributed most to our knowledge of the past, and at particular investigative techniques that are now being used to refine this knowledge and thereby to question previous assumptions.
In Radiocarbon Dating, Sheridan Bowman provides a much-needed introduction to the complex field of carbon dating.
One of the impressive points Whitewall makes is the conspicuous absence of dates between 4,500 and 5,000 years ago illustrating a great catastrophe killing off plant and animal life world wide (the flood of Noah)!
I hope this helps your understanding of carbon dating.
If you have any more questions about it don't hesitate to write.
(2.) I just listened to a series of lectures on archaeology put out by John Hopkins Univ.
For object over 4,000 years old the method becomes very unreliable for the following reason: Objects older then 4,000 years run into a problem in that there are few if any known artifacts to be used as the standard.
You can find some further good information here: -- read the full page if you get the chance.
Radiocarbon Dating inaugurates a new series, "Interpreting the Past," published jointly by the British Museum and the University of California Press.
If something carbon dates at 7,000 years we believe 5,000 is probably closer to reality (just before the flood).
Robert Whitelaw has done a very good job illustrating this theory using about 30,000 dates published in Radio Carbon over the last 40 years.
We believe all the dates over 5,000 years are really compressible into the next 2,000 years back to creation.
