Title: Perceptions on the Morphology and Style of Artefacts vs the Carbon Cycle
Subtitle: A Response to O.W. Muscarella's Dating of Muweilah
Author(s): MAGEE, Peter
Journal: Ancient West & East
Volume: 7 Date: 2008
In a paper in this issue of Ancient West & East, O.W. Muscarella suggests an alternative chronology for the Iron Age site of Muweilah in the United Arab Emirates. In this paper we explore the basis for this reappraisal and conclude that not only is it not based on an analysis of relevant archaeological data but that it takes no account of the numerous C 14 dates from Muweilah and other Iron Age II sites in south-eastern Arabia.
