Charlotte Pearson, from the Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research, University of Arizona, was visiting Crete to develop collaborations with archaeological teams interested in establishing a tree-ring and radiocarbon-based chronology for Crete. Recent developments in Accelerator Mass Spectrometry dating and new ways to use this in combination with dendrochronology open possibilities for Cretan chronology that were not previously feasible and will be the focus of a new laboratory and training facility that she is developing in Arizona. Working with archaeobotanist and anthrachologist Maria Ntinou (shown here), from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Charlotte hopes to maximize the potential of preserved wood from sites on Crete.
