Purpose
OxCal

A software application that enables a user to perform radiocarbon calibration and analysis of archaeological and environmental chronological information. It may be used to calculate the probable age ranges of scientifically dated samples through radiocarbon calibration, sapwood estimates and other methods. It is possible to establish age by measuring the rate of decay of the radioactive isotope 14C - a naturally occurring ubiquitous entity found in all life-forms.
