Archaeology C14 Radiocarbon Dates Scheme
The Royal Irish Academy in association with Queen's University Belfast, offers radiocarbon dating to ten applicants per annum, to be used for the purposes of archaeological research in Ireland. The offer is intended to assist research projects, including people pursing an academic degree. It is not our intention to fund commercial archaeology companies or developer funded projects. Priority will be given to proposals that address critical research issues. Distribution of the dates will be at the discretion of the RIA Standing Committee of Archaeology.
How To Apply
Applicants are required to complete the online submission form and include the following information:
- Sources of funding for the excavation
- Authorisation details of the artefact
- Find context of sample
- The research issue the proposed date will address
