Mesoamerican Radiocarbon Database (MesoRAD)

Creator(s): Julie Hoggarth; Claire Ebert

Year: 2020

Summary

The Mesoamerican Radiocarbon (MesoRAD) database compiles radiocarbon dates and isotopic data from archaeological sites in across Mesoamerica. The initial dataset from MesoRAD is a compilation of 14C dates from the Maya lowlands. We will be expanding the database to other parts of Mesoamerica soon. If you would like to submit your data to MesoRAD, please visit our website for more information: http://www.mesorad.com
