This dating service provides support for all stages of radiocarbon dating from project design and sample choice right through to data analysis.
All samples submitted to the laboratory must be accompanied by a sample submission form that gives the details of the sample we need. In addition, we would ask submitters to look at our Policy on the dating of Antiquities and sign our terms and conditions.
If you are unable to submit the form online for any reason spreadsheet or paper forms can be sent (please contact our administrator).
