Yay, for once somebody at Sb except me is writing about European archaeology! SciBling Chris at Highly Allochthonous offers a long thoughtful writeup of a recent geology paper on the post-glacial flooding of the Black Sea basin and its possible effect on neolithisation. With a beautiful colour map of the European neolithisation wave!
Note that all the radiocarbon dates in Chris’s entry are uncalibrated ones. 8300 BP is the raw radiocarbon date for the flood event, but that isn’t equivalent to 6300 BC, it’s more like 7400 cal BC. (The Maglemose era, for you Scandies.) Free on-line radiocarbon calibration and an explanation for why it’s needed can be had at OxCal‘s site.
