Radiocarbon CONTEXT database is a collection of radiocarbon dates from Upper Paleolithic,
Epipaleolithic, Pre-Pottery-Neolithic, Pottery Neolithic and Chalcolithic sites in the
Near East and neighboring regions (20.000 - 5.000 calBC). In addition, information is
provided as to archaeological contexts, site coordinates and bibliographical references.
Select first one or several regions or periods by using the global filter, then extract
your data by the "site", "14C", "multi-method" or "references" menu. Generally speaking,
typing the first three or four letters of the site's name will suffice.
The quality of data is not the same for all regions. The data of the orange areas on the
map are the most reliable. Grey denotes that the data of a given area are less complete
and standardized. In the remaining areas data are scanty and have not been verified fully.
