  • Comment A project of collecting radiocarbon dates from different archaeological sites in Slovenia, was conducted in order to establish an absolute chronological framework of archaeological entities and phenomenons that were observed in the span between 2nd half of the 3rd and 1st half of the 1st millennium BC. The sites where C14 analysis was performed on Iron Age contexts are listed below. 7 samples of charcoal were taken from the site Trimlini pri Lendavi. One belong to Late Bronze age pit, one was taken from circular ditch, others from different pits with prevalent Iron Age ceramic material.65One belong to Late Bronze age pit, one was taken from circular ditch, others from different pits with prevalent Iron Age ceramic material (ŠAVEL – SANKOVIČ 2014, 65–78). 12 samples were taken from areas Kotare-Krogi, Kotare-Baza and Za Raščico which are forming Early Iron Age complex of Nova tabla. 1 sample was from cremated human bone discovered in Iron Age grave (Za Raščico) other was from charcoal which was in cremation grave discovered at Kotare-Krogi. 10 other samples of charcoal were taken from settlement contexts discovered at Kotare-Baza (KERMAN 2014, 107–115; 117–139; JEREB – SANKOVIČ – ŠAVEL 2014, 141–159). Two samples of charcoal were taken from both graves that were discovered on Viktorina Ptujskega street in Ptuj were included in to analysis (LUBŠINA TUŠEK 2014, 197–203). 3 samples of cremated human bones from graves 2,5 and 6 that were discovered on necropolis in Miklavž were included in analysis (ČREŠNAR – MURKO 2014, 205–214). Samples of cremated human bones that were discovered in graves 27 and 171 on necropolis in Pobrežje were C14 dated (ČREŠNAR – BONSALL – TOHOMAS 2014, 215–219). A sample of cremated bone from grave 2 from 2nd Late Bronze age necropolis in Ruše was included into C14 analysis (ČREŠNAR – BONSALL – TOHOMAS 2014, 221–223). 4 samples that were taken from contexts discovered at site Rogoza belonged to Early Iron age. These were a sample of charcoal and cremated human bone from Tumulus 2, a sample of cremated human bone from Tumulus 1 and one sample of charcoal that was discovered in a pit with ceramic material (ČREŠNAR 2014, 248–225). 7 samples of charcoal were taken from 5 diferent pits that were interpreted as the sunken floor huts. Remains of these buildings were discovered on Hotinja vas site 8GERBEC 2014, 275–286). Samples of cremated human remains were taken from 5 different graves that were discovered on Late Bronze age cemetery at Gračič in vicinity of Brinjeva gora (ČREŠNAR et. al. 2014, 305–311). 2 samples of charcoal were taken from the burnt remains of a building that was dated to Younger Hallstatt period. The remains were discovered on the hill Onger above Trzin (ŽELEZNIKAR 2014, 313–318). A dendrochronological mesurment was performed on 5 wood samples that were recovered from post holes. The postholes were discovered bellow the promontory where the city center of Kranj is located. Two samples from one of the wood samples were taken for C14 dating, and wiggle matching was performed in order to calibrate the C14 dates (ČREŠNAR et. al. 2014, 319–332). C14 dating was performed on 5 samples that were taken from layers discovered on Šmarna gora. Two samples were from charcoal others were taken from animal bones (MURGELJ – NADBATH 2014, 345–354). Carbon dating was performed on the samples from cremated human bones which were taken from graves 314, 277, 174, 101, 231, 125, 127, 87 and 316. All of the graves were excavated on the necropolis "Dvorišče SAZU" in Ljubljana (ŠKVOR JERNEJČIČ 2014, 363–385). A sample of cremated human bone was used for C14 dating. Bone was taken from the Late Bronze age grave discovered at the site NUK II in Ljubljana (GASPARI 2014, 386–391). 11 samples of charcoal and grains were taken from the settlement contexts discovered on the site Tribuna in Ljubljana (VOJAKOVIČ 2014, 392–412). Two samples for C14 dating were taken from the wooden handles that were preserved inside of two different socketed axes. First one was discovered in a grave 72, other one in grave 99 in the Tumulus 48 in Stična (TERŽAN 2014, 451–462). A sample of charcoal was taken from a cultural layer that was discovered on the terrace in the hiltop settlement Žempoh nad Ostrožnikom (DULAR 2014, 463–465). 16 samples were taken from cemeteries that are forming Novo mesto Iron age complex. These are 2 samples of cremated human bones from the flat cremation cemetery at Mestne njive (grave 132 and 384b). 1 sample of cremated human bone (flat cramatin grave 140), 1 sample of horse tooth that was interred into central grave in Tumulus I, a sample of human scull from grave 16 in Tumulus I and a sample of horse tooth collagen from grave 34 in Tumulus XVI. All graves were discovered on Kapiteljske njive. One sample of horse tooth that was discovered in grave 3 in Tumulus IV at cemetery in Kandija was also taken for C14 analysis (KRIŽ – JEREB 2014, 469–472; KRIŽ – JEREB – TRŽAN 2014, 473–484; 485–504). 4 samples of charcoal were taken from different settlement contexts that were discovered at site Orešje na Bizeljskem (KOVAČ 2014, 505–514). 3 samples of charcoal were taken from cremation graves 15, 25, 33, that were discovered in Tumulus at area Hrib, which is a part of Metlika Iron age complex (GRAHEK 2014, 519–523). Samples of human bones were taken from 5 inhumation graves that were a part of a Necropolis on the slope of Križna gora (BAVDEK – URLEB 2014, 525–536). Cremated human remains were samplet in 6 different graves that were discovered at Tronovo pri Ilirski Bistrici necropolis (BAVDEK – URLEB 2014, 537–547). Samples from 3 cremation graves discovered at Zidanica necropolis were taken for C14 analysis (BRATINA 2014, 549–561). Samples from two different charcoal fragments that were discovered in the same layer at hillfort Tomaj were analysed with C14 method (BRATINA 2014, 587–593). Two grape vine seeds and a sample of charcole that were discovered in the settlement context in Štanjel were recovered for C14 dating (FABEC – VINAZZA 2014, 595–602). 4 samples of charcoal that were recovered from 3 different contextes inside the stone structure that was excavated on hilltop Ostri vrh (TERŽAN – TURK 2014, 603–610). A sample was taken from a charcoal fragment that was stuck in a crack of an ramo secco type ingot. Ingot was discovered in a layer that included Hallstatt, Late Iron age and Roman period type pottery fragments. The layer was documented on an area called Repelc which lies on the north western edge of Most na Soči (St. Lucia) necropolis (MLINAR 2014, 611–614). Samples of cremated human bones were taken from 5 cremation graves that were a part of Necropolis in Kobarid (KRUH 2014, 615–627).
