Collective burials of the Late Neolithic are found all over Europe; however, undisturbed inhumations are rare. Therefore, the dolmen of Oberbipp (fig. 1) in Switzerland, with approximately 40 individuals, provides a great opportunity to study the burial in its entirety. Radiocarbon dating is used commonly in archaeology. Nevertheless, often only few samples are analyzed due to funding reasons. The aim of this project was twofold: a) to evaluate the burial sequence; b) to sample the most frequently occurring bone for dating at least at two laboratories.
