Radiocarbon dating of metal


05-Jun-2016 04:00

Relative dating in archaeology presumes the age of an artefact in relation and by comparison, to other objects found in its vicinity.Limits to relative dating are that it cannot provide an accurate year or a specific date of use.Archaeology dating techniques can assure buyers that their item is not a fake by providing scientific reassurance of the artefact's likely age.Archaeological scientists have two primary ways of telling the age of artefacts and the sites from which they came: relative dating and absolute dating.

When an archaeological site is excavated the sides of the unexcavated baulk reveals layering of subsequent settlements and activity.

Stratigraphic excavation is the recording and study of these different strata as they are removed from the area.

When museums and collectors purchase archaeological items for their collections they enter an expensive and potentially deceptive commercial fine arts arena.

Healthy profits are to be made from illicitly plundered ancient sites or selling skillfully made forgeries.

The shape and style of an artefact changes through time although its function may remain the same.The changing styles of pottery, glass, stoneware, and metal objects provide archaeology analysts with known progressive sequences.
