Description

Radiocarbon dates (n=14,053) and site coordinates (n=4,213) from the EUROEVOL project database. Sites without radiocarbon dates (n=544), phase-codes, and other data have been omitted (the complete dataset can be found on http://discovery.ucl.ac.uk/1469811/).

Usage

Format

A data.frame with the following variables:

C14ID

ID of each radiocarbon date

C14Age

Radiocarbon age in 14C years BP

C14SD

Radiocarbon age error

LabCode

Labcode of the radiocarbon date

Material

Material of the dated sample

SiteID

ID of the site from which the sample has been recovered

Latitude

Latitude of the sampling site in decimal degrees

Longitude

Longitude of the sampling site in decimal degrees

Country

Country where the sampling site is located
