The development of tephrochronology as a sub-discipline. Citation-analytical bar charts showing the increase of (A) published items and (B) citations in the Web of Knowledge when the search terms ‘tephrochronology’ (empty bars) and ‘tephrochronology’ AND ‘archaeology’ (filled bars) are employed. Whilst such searches may not accurately reflect the volume of tephra research conducted with archaeological relevance (see discussion in main text), they do suggest that archaeology does remain poorly linked with tephrochronology on the whole.
