RELATIVE DATING METHODS. This dating method is also known as “ Archaeological Dating” or “Historical Chronology”. These are mainly non- scientific dating. Dating methods are either absolute or relative. Absolute dating relies on biological, chemical (radiometric), geological/electromagnetic, or historical investigation. Dating refers to the archaeological tool to date artefacts and sites, and to properly construct koldating.top methods can be classified into two basic categories.
The starting phase of the Palaeolithic period in India is pushed back by atleast one million years from the earlier dating of about 5 lakh years B. When this ash was subjected to Potassium-Argon dating it yielded a date of 1. Initially this method was developed to date the meteorites and other extra-terristrial objects, but it is now being applied to archaeological purposes as well.
