Dating the Last Firing of the Medieval or Modern Lime Kiln of Cuers (Provence, France)

Description

Radiocarbon dates and errors associated with the last firing of the kiln. These dates are measured on two charcaol found in the kiln and assumed to have burnt during the last firing.

Usage

data("cuers")

Format

A data frame with 2 observations on the following 3 variables.

SampleName

name of the charcoal

Age

a numeric vector corresponding to the radiocarbon measurement made on each charcaol

a numeric vector corresponding to the error on the radiocarbon measurement made on each charcaol

Details

The last firing date of lime kiln of Cuers (Provence, France), Pas-Redon site (Vaschalde et al. (2014)), has been determined using walls baked clay (AM dating) and charcoals (14C dating). Here the dating is only based on the 2 radiocarbon datings (Poz-42876 and Ly-16086) only.
