Question: What does radiocarbon dating determine?

An age could be estimated by measuring the amount of carbon-14 present in the sample and comparing this against an internationally used reference standard.

What is the significance of radiocarbon dating?

As long as there is organic material present, radiocarbon dating is a universal dating technique that can be applied anywhere in the world. It is good for dating for the last 50,000 years to about 400 years ago and can create chronologies for areas that previously lacked calendars.
