With the aim of unifying the separate chronologies of European and Mediterranean archaeologies, ARIADNE has produced a table which gives dates for the main archaeological periods for geographical areas that correspond to modern states or regions. These both define the chronology of, say, ‘Early Bronze Age’ for a given area and allow dates expressed only in years to be placed within a period. All dates should be understood as BP(2000).
The ARIADNE period collection is now fully represented in PeriodO with permanent URIs. The collection ARK ID/URI is http://n2t.net/ark:/99152/p0qhb66
