AbstractWe have dated carbonate fractions and organic material from different types of mortar from two sites in Belgium. We demonstrate the difficulties in obtaining good dates from carbonate samples. We also discuss the need for new types of dating material when the mortar comes from contaminated and disturbed sites, where even charcoal can yield aberrant results.
