Our server will be updated on Friday, the 25th of November, from 10:00 to 15:00 expectedly. During this time the database might not be accessible. We apologise for any inconvenience!


The database provides a quick overview of 14C dates from Europe. The time frame was limited to the Bronze and Early Iron Ages and covers the period from 2300 BC to 500 BC. The database can be searched by geographic or chronological factors, but also according to the nature of the sample material, the sites or features. The data and related information were taken from the literature cited in each case, and due to the timing of phases and culture assignment, are subject to change. We therefore assume no responsibility for the accuracy of source data.

The aforementioned authors hope through RADON-B to ensure a current overview of the absolute chronological dates in Europe and thus provide an important contribution to European chronological discussion. The database has been designed to allow users to enter their own data; this feature will soon be available. Additionally the data can also be sent to us so we can add them into the dataset. Help us keep the database up to date. To improve the service we would be grateful if you could report errors or proposals for improvement to radon@ufg.uni-kiel.de.
