The results, depending on the calibration, can be quite different. Naturally, different statistical models for interpretation of the same data will produce different results. After processing the data with all these scientific tools, most archaeologists “improve” the given dates in accordance with broader archaeological and historical considerations.

For all these reasons, contrasting dates have been reached in the ongoing chronological debate concerning the Iron Age.

In some cases today scholars are comparing radiocarbon dates, even before publishing the finds.

The archaeological evidence is often not mentioned.

The calibration curve is revised periodically as more data are continuously accumulated.
