The 47th century BC Chr. Began on January 1 v 4700th And ended on December 31, 4601 BC. This corresponds to the period from 6650 to 6551 before today .

Time calculation

According to Pearson et al. (1986), the dendrochronologically calibrated radiocarbon ages for the 47th century fluctuate between 5785 and 5749 radiocarbon years. Between 4680 and 4630 BC However, the curve shape makes a very strong negative excursion. [1] This excursion is also shown to be weaker for INTCAL98 (Stuiver, M. et al. 1998), whose values ​​for the century range between 5815 and 5750 radiocarbon years. [2]
