Dating of Charcoal Samples from the Polutepe Archeological Site in Azerbaijan
Keywords:Radiocarbon dating, Archeology, Neolithic period, Polutepe, Mughan, Charcoal
The radiocarbon dating method was used to date the age of a charcoal sample from the Polutepe archeological site in the Jalilabad district of Azerbaijan. Polutepe is the largest Neolithic-Eneolithic monument in the Caucasus. A charcoal sample excavated at the Polutepe site was dated by the conventional radiocarbon method at 4270Â±160 BC, which agrees with the stratigraphic estimated dates.
