Radiocarbon dating

Radiocarbon dating of human remains in the 21st century

The methods used in radiocarbon dating have come a long way since its discovery in the mid-20th century. Routine radiocarbon dating now uses less material and allows for more accurate results. This talk presents the current state-of-the-art for radiocarbon dating of human remains and discusses where the science is moving to in respect to how results can be used now and in the future.
