A set of tools that enables using 'OxCal' from within R. 'OxCal' (< https://c14.arch.ox.ac.uk/oxcal.html>) is a standard archaeological tool intended to provide 14C calibration and analysis of archaeological and environmental chronological information. 'OxcAAR' allows simple calibration with 'Oxcal' and plotting of the results as well as the execution of sophisticated ('OxCal') code and the import of the results of bulk analysis and complex Bayesian sequential calibration.
oxcAAR (previously named
roxcal) is a collection of functions that can be used to execute OxCal from within R.
oxcAAR is released under the GNU General Public Licence, version 2. Comments and feedback are welcome, as are code contributions.

To get started, just run:
This will download and unzip Oxcal into the current working directory. You can change the destination path of Oxcal by setting
Afterwards you can start calibrating your dates. Check the Vignette to learn how to do this.
