Libby, the discoverer of the C14 dating method, was very disappointed with this problem.

He understood that archaeological artifacts were readily available.

In contrast to relative dating techniques whereby artifacts were simply designated as "older" or "younger" than other cultural remains based on the presence of fossils or stratigraphic position, 14C dating provided an easy and increasingly accessible way for archaeologists to construct chronologies of human behavior and examine temporal changes through time at a finer scale than what had previously been possible.

Robert Whitelaw has done a very good job illustrating this theory using about 30,000 dates published in Radio Carbon over the last 40 years.

Dates up to this point in history are well documented for C14 calibration.

For object over 4,000 years old the method becomes very unreliable for the following reason: Objects older then 4,000 years run into a problem in that there are few if any known artifacts to be used as the standard.

Shells of known age collected prior to nuclear testing have also been dated ( to ascertain the effects of old carbon (i.e., local marine reservoir effects). However, the most common materials dated by archaeologists are wood charcoal, shell, and bone. In brief, radiocarbon dating measures the amount of radioactive carbon 14 (14C) in a sample.

Radiocarbon analyses are carried out at specialized laboratories around the world (see a list of labs at: When a biological organism dies, the radioactive carbon in its body begins to break down or decay.

    Ik ben hier terechtgekomen toen ik wat opzoekingen aan 't doen was in verband met Oekrane. Ik ben net terug van kharkov Oekrane, het is er heel mooi. Groetjes Hallo, is er iemand ervaring om met de eigen auto naar ukraine te gaan. Vooral het parkeren in ukraine zelf bedoel ik dan, het is niet de goedkoopste auto namelijk. Hey Jasper, Ja ben het een beetje beu telkens dat wachten op die vliegvelden.. Ze probeerde weer bij me terug te komen,wat ik natuurlijk afwees. Nu met een piloot, die net afgestudeerd was maar tot op heden nog geen werk heeft als piloot. maanden was ze van hem in verwachting en kort daarop weer. Hij zit nu met haar opgescheept met in totaal 4 kinderen. In mijn directe ken ik 6 mannen, die getrouwd zijn met een Russische dame.
