  • Bayesian tools for tephrochronology

    Buck, Caitlin E.; Higham, Thomas F.G.; Lowe, David J. (Arnold Publishers, 2003)
    It is suggested that Bayesian statistical methods for radiocarbon data interpretation, already widely used in archaeology, also have potential to improve the dating of tephra layers and hence enhance their use for ...
  • ¹⁴C dating of modern marine and estuarine shellfish

    Hogg, Alan G.; Higham, Thomas F.G.; Dahm, J. (1998)
    We measured the ¹⁴C content of 36 living marine molluscs from Tairua Harbour and the rocky coast on the Coromandel Peninsula of New Zealand. We identified species suitable for radiocarbon dating and show that the open ...
  • Calibration of the radiocarbon time scale for the southern hemisphere: AD 1850-950.

    McCormac, F.G.; Reimer, Paula J.; Hogg, Alan G.; Higham, Thomas F.G.; Baillie, Mike G.L.; Palmer, Jonathan G.; Stuiver, M. (University of Arizona, 2002)
    We have conducted a series of radiocarbon measurements on decadal samples of dendrochronologically dated wood from both hemispheres, spanning 1000 years (McCormac et al. 1998; Hogg et al. this issue). Using the data presented ...
  • Evaluation of wood pretreatments on oak and cedar

    Hoper, S.T.; McCormac, F.G.; Hogg, Alan G.; Higham, Thomas F.G.; Head, M.J. (1998)
    In a separate study, we conducted a series of high-precision radiocarbon measurements using wood from Britain and New Zealand to investigate interhemispheric offsets and possible temporal variations. To minimize variability ...
  • Evidence for late polynesian colonization of New Zealand: University of Waikato radiocarbon measurements

    Hogg, Alan G.; Higham, Thomas F.G. (1997)
    We present radiocarbon determinations for 271 New Zealand archaeological samples measured at the University of Waikato Radiocarbon Dating Laboratory between 1975 and 1995. A discard protocol is applied to the series and ...
