Question: Which is the oldest technique used to date artifacts?

Perhaps the most famous absolute dating technique, radiocarbon dating was developed during the 1940s and relies on chemistry to determine the ages of objects. Used on organic matter, the technique measures the amount of radioactive carbon decay to determine an objects age.Perhaps the most famous absolute dating

What dating technique can be used on artifacts made of bone?

Radiocarbon dating (also referred to as carbon dating or carbon-14 dating) is a method for determining the age of an object which contains organic material by using the properties of radiocarbon, a radioactive isotope of carbon. Archaeologists often use this method to date organic remains (e.g. human or animal bone).
