Scientific dating dating in a small town
We provide radiocarbon dating services as a grant in-kind to projects funded by Heritage Protection Commissions, and also in support of other projects and cases funded by Historic England.
Historic England, formerly English Heritage, produce catalogues of radiocarbon dates for the projects we fund.
The Scientific Dating Team oversee scientific dating as part of projects funded through the Heritage Protection Commissions Programme.
We conduct research and commission radiocarbon dating, dendrochronology, and other forms of scientific dating such as archaeomagnetic and luminescence dating.
Other critics, perhaps more familiar with the data, question certain aspects of the quality of the fossil record and of its dating.
These skeptics do not provide scientific evidence for their views.
These provide full technical details of all the radiocarbon dates funded during period covered by each volume.
Some critics, particularly religious fundamentalists, argue that neither fossils nor dating can be trusted, and that their interpretations are better.Tests by other scientists using paleomagnetism and fission tracks confirmed the lower date.So by 1980 there was a new, remarkably concordant date for the KBS tuff, and this became the one that was widely accepted. The internet, and this site in particular, can be a powerful tool for reaching those who would never go to church.So Curtis and others redated the KBS tuff using selected pumice and feldspar samples, and obtained an age of 1.82 million years.
This new date agreed with the appearance of the new skull.We provide Historic England and others with a comprehensive range of advice on the practical application of scientific dating.
