Title: A Bayesian approach to dating agricultural terraces: a case from the Philippines
Date: 2009
Source: Antiquity
Abstract: Field terraces are notoriously difficult to date – but historically of high significance. Here the author uses a Bayesian model applied to radiocarbon dates to date the tiered rice fields of the northern Philippines. They turn out to have been built in the sixteenth century probably by peoples retreating inland and upland from the Spanish.
