Romanian bones radiocarbon dating


This paper is an overview of recent developments in the radiocarbon dating of the most frequently analyzed archaeological materials – wood, short-lived plants, and human and animal bones – and draws attention to two sets of consequences.Firstly, while radiocarbon dating has become more accessible to archaeologists thanks to an increase in the number of laboratories, a lowering of prices, and a reduction in sample sizes, it has also grown far more dependent on fields of research, other than the traditional chemical pretreatment of samples and the physics involved in their measurement, such as wood anatomy and other fields of botany, stable isotope-based diet studies, geochemistry, micromorphology, statistics, etc., most of which are not easily accessible by the vast majority of users of radiocarbon dating (and sometimes not familiar to practicing archaeologists).Secondly, given that, on the one hand, there is still much scope for research in radiocarbon dating and, on the other, archaeological sites are a limited resource, there is need to create archives containing the detailed documentation of samples and, whenever possible, sample residues.Keywords: the archaeology of communist repression, memory, Romanian Greek Catholic Church, Bellu Cemetery.Abstract: This article presents the results of an archaeological intervention carried out in 2010 involving the exhumation of the remains of Bishop Vasile Aftenie (1899-1950).The intervention took place as part of the efforts of the Greek Catholic Church of Romania to beatify said bishop, who, from a Christian perspective, died a martyr's death: he was arrested in 1948 by the Securitate (the Romanian secret police under communism), tortured and pressured into renouncing his faith.The inventory items discovered (fragments of clothing, a collar), the stature of the deceased as computed using anthropological analysis (and in keeping with witness statements), as well as circumstancial evidence confirms the oral testimony relating to the site of the bishop's burial.



În umplutura gropii funerare am descoperit mai multe monede, dar şi un flacon de sticlă cu capac metalic având în interior fire de păr şi un bilet ce conţinea o rugăciune pentru dezlegarea blestemelor.

Monedele şi flaconul, împreună cu lumânările de pe mormânt, constituie împreună materialitatea cinstirii şi rugilor pe care credincioşii le-au adus episcopului Vasile Aftenie.
