Such correction (named as such to distinguish it from the dendrochronologically based calibration in the Holocene) is crucial if we are to compare radiocarbon-dated archaeological phenomena to environmental sequences provided by ice and deep sea cores, which are dated (by other methods) in calendrical years.
In addition, using primarily dendrochronologically dated wood to provide known age controls, systematic anomalies in the 14C time scale over the Holocene were documented.
Much the most relevant samples of known age for archaeological applications of radiocarbon are dendrochronologically dated tree-rings from the same sequence as used for one of the high-precision calibration curves: laboratory accuracy demonstrated with such known age samples means users can be confident that their radiocarbon results can be calibrated against accepted curves.
