Our new research paper about the Italian Alps

In a study published in Radiocarbon, Emilia Allevato, Gaetano Di Pasquale and collegues present a detailed spatial study in the Val Camonica, based on 6 radiocarbon accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) measurements combined with charcoal analysis. 14C data show a burning event occurred in the 4th century AD, a unique episode of “reconsecration” during the very latest phases of pagan cult activity in the Val Camonica. Charcoal analysis has produced paleobotanical information for a scarcely known period in the environmental history of the area.
