Among the artifacts from the University of Chicago’s Oriental Institute that Prof.

Willard Libby tested during the radiocarbon dating development process was this wood from an ancient Egyptian coffin.

There are three carbon isotopes that occur as part of the Earth's natural processes; these are carbon-12, carbon-13 and carbon-14.

The unstable nature of carbon 14 (with a precise half-life that makes it easy to measure) means it is ideal as an absolute dating method.

The Radiocarbon Revolution Since its development by Willard Libby in the 1940s, radiocarbon (14C) dating has become one of the most essential tools in archaeology.
