About the offset between astronomical and dendrochronological error

A remarkable result of our astronomical study is that the postulated astronomical/historical error (232 years) appears to be offset by 14 years from the dendrochronological error (218 years) found in a previous study. This means that, if we are right, then all current dendrochronological dates within the Roman time complex are given 14 years too young. According to our interpretation, the 14 years offset is caused by an improper synchronization of the Roman dendro complex towards Roman history.

Read here how this fateful synchronization was done more than thirty years ago. Our correction will also reestablish Tacitus' chronological trustworthiness which has been doubted because the generally accepted dendrochronological dates are not always compatible with Tacitus' writings.
