Radiochemical Dating Methods in Archaeology – The Shroud of Turin and More

Sponsored by AIA Ottawa and the Canadian Institute in Greece

AIA Society Event: Ottawa, ON

Tuesday, October 19, 2010 - 7:30pm - 10:30pm

Location:
Auditorium, Library and Archives Canada
395 Wellington St
Ottawa, ON
Canada

Lecturer: Don Wiles, Professor Emeritus, Carleton University

Abstract:
The speaker will describe several technical methods for dating of ancient objects and will discuss which of these may be applied to archaeological artifacts and which are not useful.  A number of these methods involve radioactive atoms.  Carbon14 dating is one obvious candidate, but potassium-argon is not.  The question is “Why not?’  Similarly, fission-track dating is not useful, but thermoluminescence can often be used.  Again the question: “Why?”  The famous case of The Shroud of Turin and other relevant examples will be discussed.
