For example, beads closely resembling those from the temple repositories at Cnoss and dating from C.1600 B.
However this formula has not been accepted by many archaeologists.
Further this formula has been disproved on many occasions. Pottery is probably the most abundantly available antique material in any archaeological site.
Antiquities and potteries of Roman origin were found in association with the finds of Indian origin.
With the aid of these dated imports it was possible to date the associated Indian objects to the first two centuries A. Similarly NBP and PGW has helped in fixing the chronology of numerous sites. Sometimes dates are also obtained with the assistance of astronomy.
Whenever and where ever such antiquities are found, associated finds are automatically dated.
For example Mauryan terracottas, Roman amphorae, Harappan pottery, NBP , PGW,etc.Specimens of organic material which can yield good amount of carbon can be collected for C-14 dating.For example charcoal, wood, shell, paper, leaves, cloth, animal hair, bone, pollen, tooth, iron, prehistoric soot from the ceiling of the caves practically any material containing some carbon can be subjected Bones are generally affected by ground water carbonates and are therefore least reliable for dating.The types and forms or shape of these pots and also the antiquities under go evolutionary changes in cource of time, It is further assumed that all living animals derive body material from the plant kingdom, and also exhibit the same proportion of C-14 material.Therefore as soon as the organism dies no further radiocarbon is added.Quite convincing dates are sometimes arrived at by importing parallels from other contemporaneous cultures.
