Radiocarbon calibration softwares :
BCal - Online Bayesian radiocarbon calibration tool (Developed at the School of History and Archaeology, Cardiff University, this allows users to obtain calibrated dates on data sets entered via a Web browser.)

Calib 6.0 : radiocarbon calibration program (University of Washington, Quaternary Isotope Laboratory and Queen's University of Belfast). You can download the program to use it in your lab, or you can use the online radiocarbon calibration program. The downloadable version 6.0 is for MS Windows and Macintosh.

CalPal download - Cologne radiocarbon CALibration and PALaeoclimate package (Designed for research on glacial C-14 age conversion)
=> CalPal download : (full program to use on your computer)
=> CalPal Online: (fast and easy to use, single date calibration, dates between 50.000 and
     1 BP will be calibrated using the calibration curve CalPal2007_HULU)

OxCal v.4 calibration program (The OxCal program is intended to provide radiocarbon calibration and analysis of archaeological and environmental stratigraphy. The program runs under Windows and Mac)

Radiocarbon databases online search :
