Before the advent of absolute dating methods in the twentieth century, nearly all dating was relative.

The main relative dating method is stratigraphy (pronounced stra-TI-gra-fee), which is the study of layers of rocks or the objects embedded within those layers.

Instead, dendrochronologists determine the qualities of each ring and determine whether other local trees possess the same qualities in the same ring in a process called "skeleton plotting".

If the tree rings between different trees formed in a similar way, then it's likely that those trees have undergone the same variation at the same time.

Dating is not necessary to demonstrate that evolution is a fact.
