Ancient Demographic Modelling Using Radiocarbon

Provides tools to directly model underlying population dynamics using date datasets (radiocarbon and other) with a Continuous Piecewise Linear (CPL) model framework. Various other model types included. Taphonomic loss included optionally as a power function. Model comparison framework using BIC. Package also calibrates 14C samples, generates Summed Probability Distributions (SPD), and performs SPD simulation analysis to generate a Goodness-of-fit test for the best selected model. Details about the method can be found in Timpson A., Barberena R., Thomas M. G., Mendez C., Manning K. (2020) .
