Abstract


Topological links between wooden artefacts and those made from stone, pottery and metal facilitate the dating of some distinctive styles of wooden container. However, radiocarbon is in many cases the only method of dating those wooden troughs and dishes that are typologically indistinct. This paper reports on the radiocarbon dating of a number of wooden vessels from Scotland.
