dc.description.abstractThe Midlands and South-west of England are represented by a long oak tree-ring chronology spanning approximately 4500-3900 BC (calibrated radiocarbon dates). The wood on which it is based originates in a technologically advanced trackway crossing the low-lying Somerset Levels, in a coastal submerged forest probably killed by rising sea-level, and in flood-plain oaks washed down the River Trent. Cross-matching between the growth patterns of the three groups of trees is of good quality, yet so far the chronology has failed to cross-date with the long Irish and German dated chronologies. The reasons for this, and the implications of eventual dating, are discussed.
