This volume holds a datelist of 647 radiocarbon determinations carried out between 2004 and 2007 in support of research funded by English Heritage throught the Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund.  It contains supporting information about the samples and the sites which produced them, a comprehensive bibliography, and two indexes for reference and analysis.  An introduction provides information about the scientific dating undertaken, and methods used for the analyses reported.  Details of technical reports available for programmes of dendrochronology, luminescence dating, and amino-acid racemization funded under this scheme are also provided.

The datelist has been collated from information provided by the submitters of samples and the dating laboratories, in order to provide easy access to raw scientific and contextual data which may be used in further research.  Many of the sites and projects from which dates have been obtained are in the process of publication.  Full references are given to these reports for those requiring further detail.
