Descriptions
  1. Type: brief

    This dataset presents an indexed compilation of chronometric determinations obtained from archaeological sites in the state of Queensland (including Torres Strait), Australia. The list includes conventional radiocarbon (14C), accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS), thermoluminescence (TL) and optically-stimulated luminescence (OSL) determinations.

  2. Type: full

    This dataset presents an indexed compilation of chronometric determinations obtained from archaeological sites in the state of Queensland (including Torres Strait), Australia. The list includes conventional radiocarbon (14C), accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS), thermoluminescence (TL) and optically-stimulated luminescence (OSL) determinations. The dataset includes site name, laboratory code, dating method, the reported age, estimated error, sample material (including taxa where available), sample details (including weight, provenience), comments on individual determinations which require further explanation or clarification, site information (including region, 1:250,000 map sheet name, latitude and longitude, state site designation, site type, alternative site names), names of principal investigators and references. The Index has three primary aims. The first is to provide a comprehensive listing of chronometric determinations obtained from archaeological sites in Queensland, including sample provenance and sample activity data where available. Secondly it aims to present basic information about chronometrically-dated sites in Queensland, including site location and basic site characteristics. The third aim is to provide a list of references for each of the dated sites which covers excavation, laboratory analysis, dating and interpretation. This last component forms a type of citation index and provides a structured entry-point to the literature concerning individual sites or sites in a particular region.

  3. Type: note

    Version 1.0 includes determinations published until the end of 2000. It contains 849 determinations from 258 sites.

  4. Type: note

    This index is necessarily a work-in-progress. Inevitably there will be errors and omissions in this compilation. New versions of the index are planned to be released on this site in the future. Any corrections or additions to this list would be appreciated and should be directed to Sean Ulm.

  5. Type: note

    The files are in xls format.
