This article discusses a radiocarbon-based chronology for the Neolithic–Eneolithic period in the present-day Republic of Karelia (Russian Federation). The main goal is to present all currently available radiocarbon datings, including the previously published dates, as well as the ones recently obtained by the authors. In total, there are 194 dates from 77 sites covering the period from the 6th to the 2nd millennium cal BC. Besides providing an up-to-date list of datings, the article also evaluates their reliability and utility in building a local chronology. Despite several shortcomings, the new AMS-supported chronology enables the study of past cultural dynamics in much greater detail than previously and allows its better integration into the wider north-east European chronological framework.

This paper was partly produced with the support of a state contract within the current research project of the Department of Archaeology of the Institute of Linguistics, Literature and History of the Karelian Research Centre of Russian Academy of Sciences (state registration number #0225-2014-0014) (AT and TKh). The majority of Karelian AMS dates, as well as part of writing this paper (KN and TM), were funded by the project ‘The use of materials and the Neolithisation of North-Eastern Europe (c. 6000–2000 BC)’ (Academy of Finland & University of Oulu, 2013–17, project #269066). One previously unpublished date of burnt bone (Fofanovo XIII site) was obtained through financial support from the Russian Scientific Fund (grant #14-17-00766).
