Relative and absolute dating for kids
From the day of the rock's creation this radioactivity begins to deplete.
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.
The style of the artefact and its archaeology location stratigraphically are required to arrive at a relative date.
Healthy profits are to be made from illicitly plundered ancient sites or selling skillfully made forgeries.
Archaeology dating techniques can assure buyers that their item is not a fake by providing scientific reassurance of the artefact's likely age.
