Many disciplines of archaeological science are concerned with dating evidence, but in practice several different dating techniques must be applied in some circumstances, thus dating evidence for much of an archaeological sequence recorded during excavation requires matching information from known absolute or some associated steps, with a careful study of stratigraphic relationships.

For this reason, many archaeologists prefer to use samples from short-lived plants for radiocarbon dating. Argon , a noble gas, is not commonly incorporated into such samples except when produced in situ through radioactive decay. Dendrochronology is another archaeological dating technique in which tree rings are used to date pieces of wood to the exact year in which they were cut down.
