Artifact dating terminology

I am contacting you in regards to using your knowledge in a scholarly paper I am writing in which I plan to get a copy write on. I referenced the dating methods such as Stratigraphy dating, relative dating, and luminescence dating. I have a gold ring which I believe is ancient but also important! The way it's constructed, the way the internal sides of the rings gold are melted with faults that look like bits of silver And the slightly differing colours, the hand carved gem and its,inscription!

The changing styles of pottery, glass, stoneware, and metal objects provide archaeology analysts with known progressive sequences.

When an archaeological site is excavated the sides of the unexcavated baulk reveals layering of subsequent settlements and activity.

Stratigraphic excavation is the recording and study of these different strata as they are removed from the area.

Rocks, when formed by volcanic reaction or other cataclysmic event, contain a minute quantity of radioactive substance.

From the day of the rock's creation this radioactivity begins to deplete.

Once an artefact is compared to its known development date then whenever that item reappears in the archaeological record, of that or any other site, it can quickly be dated.

The potential flaws in relative dating in archaeology are obvious.

The style of the artefact and its archaeology location stratigraphically are required to arrive at a relative date.

For example, if an artefact, say an oil lamp, is found co-located on the same floor of a governor's dwelling, and that floor can be dated in archaeology terms by reason of the patterns employed in the mosaic, then it is assumed that in relation to the floor that the lamp is of the same age.

There are a number of techniques that have come to archaeology through the nuclear research efforts during WW2.

Radiocarbon dating uses the biological assumption that all living things absorb carbon, both ordinary carbon, C12, and radioactive carbon, C14, into their living tissue.

The greatest problem with dating an artefact from an archaeology site is that nearly every absolute dating process requires the destruction of at least a piece of the object in conducting the analysis.
