Laboratory ID assigned to each radiocarbon date (where known)

CRA

Radiocarbon age in 14C years BP

Error

Radiocarbon age error

Material

Species

Species of the dated sample (where identified)

SiteName

Name of the site from which the sample has been recovered

Country

Country where the sampling site is located

Longitude

Longitude of the sampling site in decimal degrees

Latitude
