Clay tablets found in West Asia contain inscriptional evidence with regard to the occurrence of a solar eclipse.
Specialists in the field of astronomical research placed this solar eclipse as on 15 June 763 B. The Almanac belonging to Maya culture of Central America helped in dating several important sites accurately on the basis of astronomy.
For example, beads closely resembling those from the temple repositories at Cnoss and dating from C.1600 B.
Therefore as soon as the organism dies no further radiocarbon is added.At that time the radioactive disintegration takes over in an uncompensated manner. only half the C-14 will remain after the half-life period.In the disintegration process the Carbon-14 returns to nitrogen emitting a beta particle in the process.Charred bones are better preserved and are therefore relatively more reliable.Charcoal is best material specially if derived from short live plants.
