Establishing a Relevant Time Scale in Anthropological and Archaeological Research [and Discussion]

G. H. Curtis, R. Burleigh, T. Molleson


From time to time, it is desirable to review a given field of research, its methods and accomplishments, and see what further advances in that field may be anticipated. Toward this end, physical and chemical dating methods applicable to anthropological and archaeological problems are reviewed and discussed here, particularly recent innovations, followed by a discussion of the present status of established calibration points in early hominid evolution.
