Now, the technique of carbon dating is used by the archaeologists to accurately date the period or age of any material, be it the age of the inscriptions or the kind of materials that were used in those days.

Archeology is becoming a very high-level sophisticated field of study, equipped with discoveries such as carbon-dating, dendrochronology and such other fascinating things.
