Type of date - This field contains the type of date stored - Tree-ring dates, current and superceded, radiocarbon dates and undated samples.

Felling Date Range - Enter a beginning and end date into these fields to select all records with a felling date which lies between them. For all records after a particular date moit the 'before' date and vice versa for all records before a date.
NB. Since in the inclusion of radiocarbon dates these are not solely felling dates but search for all dates using this field.

Location - The location of the Building dated, usually including town/village and name. Enter any part of the name or town.

County - Select a county from the choices in the drop down list.

Grid Reference - Grid references can be entered to different amounts of precision. Just entering the Grid letter will return everything within that 100km square. Entering numbers in the easting and northing boxes confines the search to grid references beginning with the corresponding digits.

Type of Structure - This field contains information about the structure or make up of a building (Aisled, cruck etc)

Type of Building - This field holds information about the sort of building (Barn, house, church etc)

Period - This field contains the period the date lies within using the MIDAS standard.

Laboratory - This field contains the name of the laboratory where the dating was carried out.

Identifiers - These allow you to find an entry in the database according to volume and page number in the original publications or using the List sequence database identifier.
