Synchronising radiocarbon dating and the Egyptian historical chronology by improved sample selection

Abstract:
Egypt has some of the oldest written records and extended lists of named rulers. But radiocarbon dates have only fulfilled expectations 66 per cent of the time. So why haven't the two types of dating made a better match? The authors provide a dozen excellent reasons, which will sound the alarm among researchers well beyond Dynastic Egypt. © Antiquity Publications Ltd.
