      In the two years since the first successful measurements of 14C by high energy mass spectrometry, the advantages and the basic techniques of the method have been sufficiently reported. They will not be repeated here. This paper describes the work being done at Oxford to fill the gap between demonstrating the effectiveness of the approach and the creation of a facility dedicated to the carbon dating of milligram samples.
