This article does a very good job explaining the methodology of C14 dating a lucky find of samples from the north Aegean. There is some corresponding Proto Geometric pottery, and the old chronology is very well supported by this work. If anything, it pushes the dates back.

That is interesting. If the dates are irrefutably pushed back --I'd hope that artifacts like armour would also have their dates pushed back accordingly.

I suppose they would, if they were correlated with other artifacts or dates. I just found this interesting, as this debate is far from over.
In a way though, I'm not all that surprised.

LHIIIC pottery was found in Troy VII. This means that the kegelhelms at Lefkandi and by extension other kegelhelms could indeed be the type of helmet worn during the Trojan War. Also, Troy would have fallen after the formal collapse of the Mycenaean Palace civilization; reflected in the chaos that resulted in Agamemnon's murder on his return.

This would also cause Homer's descriptions of armour to synch up well with reality!

There was a dendrochronology report I linked to a couple of years back that had similar conclusions; I can't seem to find that post now.
