Datatypes include scalar (linear) caliper measurements taken by Delson and his students and colleagues (as well as selected data transcribed from the published literature) on dentition, skull and postcranial elements; 3D data from Microscribe digitizers and laser scanners on crania, mandibles and postcrania. Digital imagery is planned for future inclusion. The majority of the data are derived from extant and fossil cercopithecids, with smaller samples of extant hominoids, with fossils to come.</form></TD>

It was designed to assess from the  current state of our knowledge of the mild middle part of last glacial  period whether its climate might have played a role in the extinction of the Neanderthals. The Stage Three Project's two databases, one faunal  and the other archaeological, were conceived to be complementary, and indeed were constructed using many of the same sources. Only European  archaeological and faunal assemblages which carry absolute  determinations (radiocarbon, thermoluminescence, uranium-series,  electron-spin resonance, etc.) have been included in the databases.</form>
