Bchron is a Bayesian chronology model implemented in R.

The package enables quick calibration of radiocarbon dates under various calibration curves (including user generated ones); Age-depth modelling as per the algorithm of Haslett and Parnell (2008); Relative sea level rate estimation incorporating time uncertainty in polynomial regression models; and non-parametric phase modelling via Gaussian mixtures as a means to determine the activity of a site (and as an alternative to the Oxcal function SUM).

To install the development version of the package type:

# If required install devtools:
#install.packages('devtools')
devtools::install_github('andrewcparnell/Bchron')

You can then explore the package with:

library(Bchron)
help(Bchronology) # Help on the chronology modelling function
help(BchronCalibrate) # Help on the calibrate function

To install the stable version of the package go to R and type:

install.packages('Bchron')
