So for this example what we're going to be looking at is a stick in King Tuts tomb.The halflife of carbon 14 is 5730 ± 30 years, and the method of dating lies in trying to determine how much carbon 14 (the radioactive isotope of carbon) is present in the artifact and comparing it to levels currently present in the atmosphere.Above is a graph that illustrates the relationship between how much Carbon 14 is left in a sample and how old it is.
