Advances in Archaeological and Museum Science, volume 2. From Hiroshima to the Iceman : The Development and Applications of Accelerator Mass Spectrometry. They brand such accounts as myth, racist propaganda and story telling, not grounding for dating stone.
The AMS ages of the pollen concentrates provided consistently older age estimates for each sample than ages derived from their respective organic residue or combined pollen and organic residue fractions.
It is likely that the younger age estimates of the organic residue fractions result from the incorporation of younger plant material into the sample and possible contamination from younger humic acids percolating through the site.

Contrary to recent claims, the existing data do not prove the “blitzkrieg” model of overkill.The cause of the extinction of giant birds, reptiles, and mammals in the late Pleistocene is, for palaeobiology, what Fermat's last theorem was for mathematics (1): a long-standing scientific puzzle that has captured the imagination of specialists and nonspecialists alike (2).In 1994 he and his colleagues published a 604-page document listing and discussing their results.Today it is very hard book to track down which is a shame as it is a first class piece of scholarly work and remains the authoritative publication in this area. [Excellent book documenting the principle methods for dating in archaeology.
