Relative dating in archaeology presumes the age of an artefact in relation and by comparison, to other objects found in its vicinity.
Limits to relative dating are that it cannot provide an accurate year or a specific date of use.
Archaeology dating techniques can assure buyers that their item is not a fake by providing scientific reassurance of the artefact's likely age.
Archaeological scientists have two primary ways of telling the age of artefacts and the sites from which they came: relative dating and absolute dating.
This is especially true of Wessex, where many major hillforts have been explored over the years, including Cadbury Castle, Maiden Castle and best known of all, Danebury.
According to Irina Zilberbod, excavation director, “The quarrying phenomenon created a spectacular sight of bedrock columns and steps and craters of sorts that were the result of the rock-cuttings.Similar14C dating programmes have already altered our understanding of other periods of British and world prehistory, as well as individual sites such as Stonehenge.The current project is seen as a step on the way to putting Iron Age chronologies on a firmer footing. Hillforts are the most iconic monuments surviving from Iron Age Britain, dominating academic and public perceptions of the period.14C dating was long neglected, because it was thought to allow less precision than artefact dating and because of the ‘Hallstatt plateau’ between 800–400 BC. This has created gaps in the familiar sequence, with knock-on consequences for the models that govern our perceptions of Iron Age societies (Barrett et al. An example is the 2nd to 1st century BC void identified by 14C dating of the metalwork that underpins the pottery typologies used to date most settlements.The last decade, has however seen major advances in methodology and through specific 14C dating projects (e.g. If a re-alignment of insular and continental chronologies is found to be necessary, this will have major implications for our interpretation of the mid to late Iron Age transition in Britain.
