Radiocarbon Dating

Shedding Light on Nuclear Radiation

This episode looks at how scientists use the presence of radioactive carbon-14 atoms in nature to determine the age of ancient artifacts. This dating technique is called radiocarbon dating. The programme also explains how carbon-14 is continuously being produced high up in the atmosphere. If it wasn't for this continuous production, radio carbon dating just wouldn't be a thing.
