Progress in radiocarbon dating and calibration accuracy should lead to the development of a calibrated radiocarbon chronology of Near Eastern archaeology, particulary for historical times. The lack of such an independent and impartial chronology is a major constraint, not only in archaeological studies, but also for interdisciplinary research involving the history of man, landscape and climate in the Near East and adjacent regions. 
Radiocarbon Dating in Near-Eastern Contexts: Confusion and Quality Control
Near-Eastern archaeology has long remained oblivious to radiocarbon dating as unique historical calendars brought about a perception that 14C dating is superfluous. Circular chronological reasoning
NEW RADIOCARBON DATES FROM SOUTHERN MESOPOTAMIA (FARA AND UR)
This article reports three new radiocarbon dates from the Iraqi sites of Tell Fara (Shuruppak) and Tell Muqayyar (Ur), produced as a part of a larger dating project on the absolute chronology of
Radiocarbon Dating of Early Dynastic Mesopotamia: Results, Limitations, and Prospects
Abstract This paper describes the results of Bayesian modeling of radiocarbon dates from Early Bronze Age contexts in Southern Mesopotamia, modern-day southern Iraq. The model uses 14C dates
IN NEAR-EASTERN CONTEXTS : CONFUSION AND QUALITY CONTROL

Near East Chronology: Towards an Integrated 14C Time Foundation
Chronology is the backbone of all history, as the flow of time is identical in scholarly and scientific fields, even in the Near East. Radiocarbon dating can provide an essential and unifying
Radiocarbon re-dating of contact-era Iroquoian history in northeastern North America
TLDR
The revised time frame dramatically rewrites 16th-century contact-era history in this region, with key processes of violent conflict, community coalescence, and the introduction of European goods all happened much later and more rapidly than previously assumed.
Reanalysis of the Chronological Discrepancies Obtained by the Old and Middle Kingdom Monuments Project
The most extensive chronometric study ever undertaken on Egyptian Dynastic sites was published in Radiocarbon by Bonani et al. (2001). It comprised 269 radiocarbon measurements on monuments ranging

Reliable series of high-precision radiocarbon dates in a stratified archaeological context are of great importance for interdisciplinary chronological and historical studies. The Early Bronze Age in
Radiocarbon Challenges Archaeo-Historical Time Frameworks in the Near East: the Early Bronze Age of Jericho in Relation to Egypt
Our stratified radiocarbon dates from EB Jericho (Trench III) on short-lived material are significantly older than conventional archaeo-historical time frameworks. The calibrated 14C date of Stage XV
14C Dates from Tel Rehov: Iron-Age Chronology, Pharaohs, and Hebrew Kings
Stratified radiocarbon dates provide an independent chronological link between archaeological layers and historical data. The invasion by Pharaoh Shoshenq I (Shishak) is a key historical synchronism,
