I managed to combine these interests when I found a place for my undergraduate project and doctoral work in the Research Laboratory for Archaeology at Oxford. In 1995 I came to Durham a Lecturer, where my research has broadened to cover the chemistry of bones and teeth applied to archaeological problems, and Bayesian statistics applied to archaeology, particularly to the analysis of scientific dating techniques, and with wider applications in Quaternary science.
In this new contribution, an approach is outlined using Bayesian methods, rather than classical statistics.The current version 1.5 works with different calibration curves for 14C and Archaeomagnetism. Contact Dr Andrew R Millard (email at [email protected]) My first degree was in chemistry at Oxford, but whilst studying for that I discovered the delights of archaeology, going digging at weekends. explored the uptake of uranium into bone in order to improve the basis of uranium-series dating of bone, and a post-doctoral project explored wider issues of the effect of groundwater hydrology on the decay and preservation of bones.A user-friendly interface is proposed for entering the data, MCMC calculations can be inspected in details, models and results are presented using the Bayesian statistical framework.Chrono Model is a free and open-source cross-platform software (Mac, Windows, Linux).
