Neolithic Houses find
#1
http://www.pasthorizonspr.com/index.php/...-at-quarry

Not that I am one to promote Past Horizons Wink However, this little scoop is a cracking find... 4 Neolithic Houses!

I ain't heard the like! :face-approve:

Quarries do have the opportunity for finding larger parts of teh past landscape

Weird the way stuff like that only turns up in certain parts of Britain, deeply jealous, round here one has to make do with a few stake-holes, then you guys up in Scotland get proper ones again Sad

Pits look cool too....

Not half.... they are well chuffed. so are the quarry company. it does mean they do have souls!

And yes indeed. up here we seem to have the goods - which makes up for you having all the nice Iron Age !

I was on the ones at Ballygally with prof simpson... possibly even longer ago Smile -- in fact they looked like they had just been vacated... lol!

Ah... these were the days when you got to dig stuff like that...

My last 'possible' Neo building the enviro people managed to select a 'short-lived' C14 sample too small to date... :face-crying:

...shame the big lumps of charcoal got ignored really...the 'specialists' don't get to do the sample-selecting any more, certainly not on my projects anyway }Smile:face-approve:

how can you pick a sample too small to date by AMS?
If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don't have to worry about answers

Ask the specialists concerned - they've managed it several times!

Actually I've got several samples that are 'iffy' on the weight front at the moment, not sure whether to recommend, but in those cases it's the only material available - it's a different matter when there's 'less good' but lots-of-it charcoal but you still wind up with no date...nearest thousand years would have been fine... Sad
