Establishing the contemporaneity of archaeological deposits from different sites, correlating archaeological occupations with climatic events, and examining periods of transition between major cultural traditions all require precise chronometric dating in order to address them adequately. Such data have been lacking for the Tampa Bay region until recently. In this chapter, a large data set of radiocarbon dates from 11 late prehistoric (500 B.C. to A.D.1500) is presented. These are used to examine the relationship between settlement patterns, sea-level fluctuations, and climatic events; refining the region’s ceramic chronology; and site formation.

Keywords:   Tampa Bay, Radiocarbon Dates, Ceramic Chronology, Sea Levels, Settlement Patterns, Site Formation
