Application of in-situ produced terrestrial cosmogenic nuclides to archaeology: A schematic review

Naki Akcar, Susan Ivy-Ochs & Christian Schl├╝chter
The wide applicability of in-situ produced Terrestrial Cosmogenic Nuclides (TCNs) to geological problems and experiences in development and testing gained over the past decade is encouraging for its application to archaeological questions, where there is a distinct need for an additional independent dating tool beyond the limits of radiocarbon (~ 40 ka). Just as TCNs are applicable to a broader time period with considerable precision in archaeology, so also are they applicable to all lithologies....
