This database is a resource and not a finished product; as such it is only as valuable as the uses that are made of it.

To provide some insights into its potential a few broad-brush analyses of the data are provided here:

/radiocarbon/analysis/1/
Basic overview of the spread of dates derived from human bone, demonstrating the potential of the database's 'sample material' field.

/radiocarbon/analysis/2/
Overview of the geographical distribution of dates across the study area, demonstrating the potential of the database's grid reference fields.

/radiocarbon/analysis/3/
Basic analysis of the spread of radiocarbon dates across time, demonstrating an application of the database's calibration fields.

/radiocarbon/analysis/4/
Study of the development of the radiocarbon corpus over time, demonstrating the potential of the database's bibliographic reference field.
