These various dating techniques fall into one or more of three categories: absolute, relative, and radio-metric.Absolute techniques of varve analyses and dendrochronology are only such when they can be clearly calibrated to a known year; in all other cases, they are relative dating techniques. Time is the omnipresent judge that indicts all life for existence and condemns it to death. All living beings go through life being on occasion acutely aware of its transient yet eternal, ceaseless yet tenacious quality.His observations, which were not easily accessible until the 18th century, are all the more remarkable when one considers the intellectual milieu of that era.
Some techniques (for example, obsidian hydration, archaeomagnetism) require a radiometric technique for calibration; all benefit from their use.This is the kind of pedantic (to us) debate that took place, so that although historical sites were being studied, prehistoric archaeology was being interpreted in light of the Bible.It was only in the early part of the 19th century (1837) that Mercati’s concepts were applied rigorously to a museum collection in Denmark by Christian Thomsen (1788-1865).Collectors and travelers of classical times, such as Herodotus, studied historic monuments and produced speculative accounts of prehistory.In fact, several dozen classical authors in the first millennium BC ordered time as a succession of ages based on technological progress.It generally was believed that all living plant and animal species were survivors of the Great Flood and that with careful biblical research, especially on the book of Genesis, it was possible to calculate the age of the earth. John Lightfoot, the vice-chancellor of Cambridge University, calculated that the universe was created in 4004 BC, on October 23, at am, coincidental with the beginning of the Fall Term.
