Dear Sir,
Your letter of July 22nd addressed to Dr. Wiseman has been referred to me. . .

There has been so far as I am aware no radiocarbon dating of objects from the New Kingdom. I do not think that such a test, given the necessary measure of tolerance which must be allowed, is likely at the moment to give a chronology for the New Kingdom which is any more certain than a chronology deduced by historical methods.


Yours faithfully,


A. F. Shore, Assistant Keeper
