This database contains information collected during the AHRB-funded project "The Origin and Spread of Neolithic Plant Economies in the Near East and Europe", directed by Stephen Shennan (UCL) and James Conolly (UCL, now Trent University, Canada) with collaboration from James Steele (UCL) and Sue Colledge (UCL). The dataset consists of four tables: (1) sites.csv, which contains the site name [P], country of location and the reference used for creating the data record; (2) phases.csv, which contains the site names [S], a phase code [P], and the broad cultural designation of each phase; (3) samples.csv, containing the phase code [P1], a taxon code [P2] and a field indicating whether the sample is likely contaminated or not; (4) a taxa table linking the taxa code [P/S] to full taxonomic details. The dataset is intended to be used in a relational database, with [P] designating a primary key, and [S] a secondary (linking) key.
