Absolute dating is a method of determining the specific date of a paleontological or archaeological artifact or location based on a specific time scale or calendar.

of the two ladies, the aunt's chance, in the ordinary course of nature, of receiving the ten thousand pounds, was thus rendered doubtful in the extreme; and Madame Fosco resented her brother's treatment of her as unjustly as usual in such cases, by refusing to see her niece, and declining to believe that Miss Fairlie's intercession had ever been exerted to restore her name to Mr.

With this in mind geologist have long known that the deeper a sedimentary rock layer is the older it is, but how old?
Although there might be some mineral differences due to the difference in source rock, most sedimentary rock deposited year after year look very similar to one another.
The Wheeler Formation has been previously dated to approximately 507 million year old, so we know the trilobite is also about 507 million years old.
