This approach helps to order events chronologically but it does not provide the absolute age of an object expressed in years.
Relative dating includes different techniques, but the most commonly used are soil stratigraphy analysis and typology.
On the other hand, absolute dating includes all methods that provide figures about the real estimated age of archaeological objects or occupations.
These methods usually analyze physicochemical transformation phenomena whose rate are known or can be estimated relatively well.
Relative dating is a dating method that used to determine determine the relative ages of geologic strata, artifacts, historical events, etc.
This technique does not give specific ages to items.
Similarly, materials of human origin are also deposited onto the earth’s surface.
In archaeological sites, natural and human-generated materials occur together in layers.
Archaeologists have access to various techniques for dating archaeological sites or the objects found on those sites.These layers, called strata, form a record of past events that archaeologists analyze and interpret.The materials deposited first are the oldest and are always found at the bottom of a given stratigraphic section.These are often characterised as the norm, rather than the exception.I thought it would be useful to present an example where the geology is simple, and unsurprisingly, the method does work well, to show the quality of data that would have to be invalidated before a major revision of the geologic time scale could be accepted by conventional scientists.
