And then the lover, Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad Made to his mistress' eyebrow. All dating methods have limitations and can be complicated by turbation, or mixing, of layers by human or natural actions.Multiple dating methods are usually required before dates are accepted.Dating methods in archaeology establish the time and sequence of events that created archaeological deposits and layers, called strata, within those deposits. Absolute dating relies on biological, chemical (radiometric), geological/electromagnetic, or historical investigation to obtain the date range of a deposit.(Examples of each method, respectively, are dendrochronology, carbon-14, archaeomagnetism, and the known year a city was destroyed.) Relative dating is based on stratigraphy (the tendency of younger layers to lie over older layers) and comparison of artifacts from undated sites to sites where dates are established.
