    … To clarify the chronology of this anthropedogenesis, carbon-14 (^<14>C) age profiles were estimated using humic acid fractions from three pedons: an anthropogenic soil, an undressed Andosol, and a Fluvisol. … However, the age of charcoal in the lower part of the anthropogenic soil horizons indicated that the initiation of anthropedogenesis occurred later than the late 13th century. … This feature was interpreted as a sign of ^<14>C activity equilibrium throughout anthropedogenesis. …
