The Ever-Expanding Data-verse

We are back with the final installment of our data-collection adventure.  In our previous posts we have talked about a number of important sources we have been using to collect already existing radiocarbon measurements (what we would call ‘legacy data’). These have included lists produced and published by radiocarbon labs, large datasets compiled by researchersContinue reading “The Ever-Expanding Data-verse”

Back to the Source

Last time on the blog, we were talking about some of the really important sources of radiocarbon data that we have been using in our data collection for Project Time.  Between these sources, it feels like we have managed to collect a lot of (perhaps even the majority of) the available measurements for 3500–1500 calContinue reading “Back to the Source”

The many strands of radiocarbon data

We finished our last blog post by promising to take you on a digital tour of the major sources of radiocarbon data we have been scouring during our summer of data collection. So here we are, to start that tour-but it is going to be split up across three posts, simply because there are soContinue reading “The many strands of radiocarbon data”

Although we are going to be submitting new samples for radiocarbon dating from a number of sites weContinue reading “The Long Hot Summer of Data Collection”
