carbondate: Calibration and Summarisation of Radiocarbon Dates

Performs Bayesian non-parametric calibration of multiple related radiocarbon determinations, and summarises the calendar age information to plot their joint calendar age density (see Heaton (2022) <doi:10.1111/rssc.12599>). Also models the occurrence of radiocarbon samples as a variable-rate (inhomogeneous) Poisson process, plotting the posterior estimate for the occurrence rate of the samples over calendar time, and providing information about potential change points.
