Description:

Hosted by the Canadian Archaeological Association and maintained by Dr. Richard Morlan of the Canadian Museum of Civilization (see the April 21, 1998 Scout Report for Social Sciences), the Canadian Archaeological Radiocarbon Database (CARD) is a new online "compilation of radiocarbon measurements that indicate the ages of archaeological and vertebrate palaeontological sites in Canada." Users may conduct cross-field searches of the database by Borden block, Borden number, site name, province, laboratory number, material dated, cultural affiliation, or range of dates. Database queries yield full data on radiocarbon (carbon-14) measurements, including provenience, taxon information, and comments. In addition, the site explains the basic principles of radiocarbon dating, the technical issues affecting the technique, and how the database was compiled. The entire CARD site is also available in French.
