shoredate: Shoreline Dating Stone Age Sites on the Norwegian Skagerrak Coast

Provides tools for shoreline dating Stone Age sites located on the Norwegian Skagerrak coast using methods presented in Roalkvam (2023) <doi:10.1016/j.quascirev.2022.107880>. Shoreline dating is based on the present-day elevation of a site, a reconstruction of past relative sea-level change, and empirically derived estimates of the likely elevation of the sites above the contemporaneous sea-level when they were in use. The geographical and temporal coverage of the method thus follows from local geological reconstructions of shoreline displacement and the degree to which settlements in the region have been found to have been located on or close to the shoreline when they were in use. Methods for numerical treatment and visualisation of the dates are provided, along with basic tools for evaluating the location of sites within the region and corresponding variation in local shoreline displacement.
