Using radiocarbon dating to establish the age of iron-based artifacts

Brief descriptions are given of some of these examined samples to illustrate issues and complexities that can arise in determining the age of iron-based carbon materials using radiocarbon dating. Artifacts are designated as follows: Stuiver, Current Anthropology9 1pp. Even in these materials, there are nonetheless many caveats associated with the use of radiocarbon dating. Figure c.
