The Santa Isabel Project (Nicaragua) is investigating domestic remains from a supposed Postclassic/Ometepe-period regional center on the shore of Lake Nicaragua. However, a suite of twelve C-14 dates from the site suggests that the occupation predates the currently accepted time range for the Ometepe period by several hundred years, calling into question the periodization and associated cultural processes. This paper reports and contextualizes those dates. 
Domestic Practice in Postclassic Santa Isabel, Nicaragua
Four seasons of excavation at the Santa Isabel site on the shore of Lake Nicaragua have recovered an extensive assemblage of material remains relating to Early Postclassic period (A.D. 800–1250)

The Archaeology of Death on the Shore of Lake Nicaragua
Multiple mortuary patterns were observed at the site of El Rayo (N-GR-39) dating to the Sapoa period (A.D. 800–1200) at three loci excavated during the 2009 field season. The site is located on a
Radiocarbon ages for the timing of debris avalanches at Mombacho Volcano, Nicaragua
Radiocarbon-dated lake sediments provide minimum-limiting ages for two major debris avalanches originating from Mombacho Volcano in Nicaragua. A basal age from Lake El Gancho indicates that the

RADIOCARBON CALIBRATION AND ANALYSIS OF STRATIGRAPHY: THE OxCal PROGRAM
TLDR
I have developed a computer program, OxCal, that will perform both 14C calibration and calculate what extra information can be gained from stratigraphic evidence, and can perform automatic wiggle matches and calculate probability distributions for samples in sequences and phases.

L'utilisation du programme informatique OxCal permet d'effectuer de nombreuses analyses sur les dates radiocarbones, de la simple calibration a l'analyse de tous les sites archeologiques en donnant

The focus of this paper is the conversion of radiocarbon ages to calibrated (cal) ages for the interval 24,000-0 cal BP (Before Present, 0 cal BP = AD 1950), based upon a sample set of

A simplified approach to calibrating (super 14) C dates.
The authors propose a simplified approach to the calibration of radiocarbon dates. They use splines through the tree-ring data as calibration curves, thereby eliminating a large part of the
DEVELOPMENT OF THE RADIOCARBON CALIBRATION PROGRAM
TLDR
This paper highlights some of the main developments to the radiocarbon calibration program, OxCal, including changes to the sampling algorithms used which improve the convergence of the Bayesian analysis.

TLDR
As in the previous lists, dates are reported in terms of the Libby half life of C14, 5570 ± 30 yr, and geochemical measurements are expressed as ∆, the normalized deviation from 95 percent of the NBS oxalic-acid standard.
