Earlier this year ARS Ltd and SUERC established the Community Archaeology Radiocarbon Dating (CARD) Fund. The CARD Fund consists of a limited number of radiocarbon dates that will be renewed on an annual basis. The funding can be applied for by community archaeology groups or projects in order for them to obtain dates on key samples obtained from sites that they have been investigating.
The first year of the Fund has been an overwhelming success with ARS Ltd and SUERC funding 14 radiocarbon dates for various community projects across the country.
To find out more and to see if your site or project is eligible for the next round of dates please visit the CARD Fund website.
