Radiocarbon dating is a technique used by archaeologists and geoscientisits to determine the approximate age of organic materials like wood and bones.
This event will give you a brief introduction to how radiocarbon dating works through a short lecture, which is followed by a tour of the 14CHRONO Centre. This Centre, Queen’s University’s Accelerated Mass Spectrometry (AMS) radiocarbon dating facility, is the only one of its kind on the island of Ireland.
