Charcoal and wood possess a high molecular weight, so rigorous pretreatments are able to be implemented without losing large amounts of sample.Its major source of error has been 'inbuilt', or 'presample' age (Mc Fadgen, 1982).Greatly simplified, the process samples living and dead trees in a given area.The tree-ring patterns are matched, and laid down in series, building a continuous timeline of known dates.

This means that things like stone, metal and pottery cannot usually be directly dated by this means unless there is some organic material embedded or left as a residue.Even then, there remains an inbuilt age effect, albeit somewhat reduced.In the late 1950's, the issue of presample age was identified as a causal factor in the difficulties encountered in accurately cross-dating the Julian calendar with that of the Yucatan Maya of Lowland Mexico.Purpose To determine the absolute age of wood and organic artifacts.Method A scientific date is either absolute (specific to one point in time) or relative (younger or older than something else).The great commission tells us to preach the Gospel to every nation.
