The future of dendrochronology with respect to the field of archaeology is forced to address several issues including legacies from the past involving the curation of data and physical specimens. Practical considerations involve the optimization of chronological coverage in both geographical and temporal dimensions to maximize future archaeological dating potential. One overriding consideration is the integration of tree-ring derived information, both chronological and environmental, with other well dated information from other proxies to provide archaeologists with the best possible background picture for their studies. The corresponding duty of archaeologists is to concentrate resources on sites that can be well dated so that information on human activities can be integrated with the environmental story underpinned by dendrochronology.
