AbstractWe have developed a software utility, "DateLab", for conventional radiocarbon age (CRA) calibration and Bayesian analysis of CRAs. The current version has a smaller range of applicability than other similar utilities such as BCal, Oxcal, and Mexcal. However, it enables analysis of some common types of CRA datasets. The main advantages of DateLab are its high quality sampling algorithm, the possibility of carrying model comparison and hypothesis testing in a straightforward way, and the unbiased character of the summary statistics on which the analysis depends.
