Comprised of over 170,000 dates from all across the world, the PEOPLE 3000 Radiocarbon Database (p3k14c) is the largest and most geographically complete dataset of global archaeological radiocarbon (¹⁴C) dates ever constructed. With each date having been collected and cleaned according to a rigorous, unified protocol, p3k14c presents a new standard for leveraging the potential of dates-as-data to study the evolution of past human societies.
