Zamostje 2, on the Dubna River, c.100km north of Moscow, appears to offer an ideal opportunity to understand the relative and absolute chronology of Upper Volga Early Neolithic pottery. More than 100 radiocarbon (14C) dates are available from a stratigraphic sequence which spans from the Late Mesolithic to the Middle Neolithic. All typological stag...


... 14 C ages of food-crusts on pottery suggest that the local FRE at Zamostje 2 in the Early Neolithic was moderate, but not negligible, with one fish-derived food-crust dating 271±69 14 C years older than a contemporaneous plant fibre (Meadows et al., 2015). While it is dangerous to extrapolate from a single sample, dietary reservoir effects at Zamostje 2 may have been relatively modest, compared to the examples listed above, particularly in the Late Mesolithic. Figure 10 shows possible calibrated dates for individual samples (following e.g. ...
