We obtain funding for radiocarbon dating the beaded garments from the Montelirio tholos

The NERC (National Environment Research Council in the UK) has awarded Dr Marta Díaz-Guardamino a radiocarbon dating support grant-in-kind for dating up to 24 shell beads from the Montelirio tholos’ garments. Radiocarbon-dating a carefully selected sample of beads from each garment will shed light on the biographies of the garments and their wearers, who were all young women. Dating will be processed by the Oxford Radiocarbon Accelerator Unit.
