Abstract
The challenges of land uplift modelling and determining the age of prehistoric settlements are discussed in this chapter. Land uplift modelling is a valuable tool for re-iterating the datings of archaeological findings, but the model and its source data must be constantly reviewed and adjusted when new data becomes available. Also, the erosion and sedimentation processes and local variations in land uplift should be taken into account when refining the land uplift model. On the other hand, the results obtained by radiocarbon dating are challenged by phenomena such as the water reservoir effect, for example.
