Reverting to "BC" style[edit]

This article has had only two major contributors: its originator, 155.97.8.73 (16:49, 12 December 2003), and John D. Croft (00:32, 19 February 2006), who contributed somewhat the greater amount. Both of them used "BC" style, and the article was written in that style until 16:20, 25 February 2006, when 85.77.105.226 switched it to "BCE" style (without even leaving an edit summary). This was clearly a no-no by the "don't mess with it" ruling about style disputes, established eight months earlier. So I have reversed the illegitimate style-change. -- Lonewolf BC 03:28, 27 November 2006 (UTC)

Radiocarbon dates[edit]

I've reverted this edit. I don't believe the chronology of Ubaid as given in the article is based solely on radiocarbon dating (consider TL dating on the pottery from the late period), and if the chronology can be pushed back more than 800 years than the traditional dates given, then it should be no problem to directly source scholarly material on Ubaid giving the modified dates. However, giving the dates as found in the article's references, and then saying "use this web calculator or table to get the true dates" is original research.

Site vs Period[edit]

Rather than create a new article for the al-Ubaid site, I'm just going to add a few refs, a coord, and a Archaeology section to the Ubaid Period article and leave the redirect as it is, unless someone thinks this is silly.Ploversegg (talk) 17:43, 13 April 2009 (UTC)ploversegg

Please explain reasons for edit[edit]

Zoeperkoe, can you please explain the reasons for your edit. Many thanks. John D. Croft (talk) 05:58, 17 December 2013 (UTC)

The Ubaid period and Tell Ubaid are not the same. Just like the Halaf period is not the same as Tell Halaf, the Jemdet Nasr period is not the same as Jemdet Nasr, the Uruk period is not the same as Uruk, and so forth. Halaf, Jemdet Nasr and Uruk already have separate articles for period and type-site, separating those for Ubaid as well is the consistent thing to do.--Zoeperkoe (talk) 06:35, 17 December 2013 (UTC)
