Radiocarbon dates associated to Neolithic contexts (ca. 5900 – 2000 cal BC) from the northwestern Mediterranean Arch to the High Rhine area

Martínez-Grau, Héctor; Morell-Rovira, Berta; Antolín, Ferran

This database is a compilation of radiocarbon dates associated with the process of arrival, development and consolidation of the first farming communities that settled between the north-western Mediterranean Arch and the High Rhine area approximately between 5900 and 2000 cal BC., covering a large geographical area previously out of the main focus of 14C data compilations. The database includes dates from scientific publications and it incorporates several fields for evaluating the quality and the reliability of the available samples. It overall provides 3690 radiocarbon dates that allow the scientific community to build chronological models that can be combined with other proxies such as spatial location, type of sample or chronocultural phase.

This research took place under the project funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation entitled "Small seeds for large purposes: an integrated approach to agricultural change and climate during the Neolithic in Western Europe" (AgriChange Project, SNSF Professorship grant number: PP00P1_170515, PI: Ferran Antolín).
