The "BELIM" masterchronology AD 1001-1970 is described (containing also data for the Master Chronology) by Michael G. L. Baillie in his article "The Belfast Oak Chronology to AD 1001"[9] (Geocoord data approximately according to map in the article). It is also available among the East Anglia Incident chronology files. The younger part of this chronology, however, was described in an article 1973[12]

  7. The text refers to a curve called "Mill Lough 3". When retrieved (by T. Axelson) and compared to all available Mill Lough samples, it was revealed that it most likely consist of QUB:Q205, Q209, Q213, Q217, Q219, Q224 and Q231. The printed curve covers AD 83 - AD 311. Possibly "Natural lake deposit" only refers to those samples, and not to all Mill Lough?
