This chapter has three aims: first, to draw attention to now-routine methods of refining radiocarbon chronologies; second, to sketch some of the first results from the application of such methods to early (but not yet really the earliest) parts of the southern British Neolithic sequence; and third, to discuss on a provisional basis the implications of a more refined sequence for our understanding of the Mesolithic–Neolithic transition and the very early development of the southern British Neolithic. In so doing, the distinctions between chronology, history, and temporality become harder to sustain.

Keywords:   radiocarbon chronology, British Neolithic sequence, Mesolithic–Neolithic transition
