Recently, Bayesian statistical software has been developed for age-depth modeling (“wiggle-match dating”) ofsequences of densely spaced radiocarbon dates from peat cores. The method is described in non-statistical terms, and is com-pared with an alternative method of chronological ordering of 14C dates. Case studies include the dating of the start of agri-culture in the northeastern part of the Netherlands, and of a possible Hekla-3 tephra layer in the same country. We discussfuture enhancements in Bayesian age modeling.
