While alive, all plants and animals take C14 into their bodies.The earliest experiments in radiocarbon dating were done on ancient material from Egypt. Libby’s team obtained acacia wood from the 3rd Dynasty Step Pyramid of Djoser to test a hypothesis they had developed.Libby reasoned that since the half-life of C years, the Djoser sample’s C14 concentration should be about 50% of the concentration found in living wood (for further details, see Arnold and Libby, 1949). Subsequent work with radiocarbon testing raised questions about the fluctuation of atmospheric C14 over time.We wanted to use science to test the accepted historical dates of several Old Kingdom monuments.One radioactive, or unstable, carbon isotope is C14, which decays over time and therefore provides scientists with a kind of clock for measuring the age of organic material.Live is a live cam site, the admittance of which will take you in the companionship of many cam entertainers that want to pleasure you and enjoy themselves at the same time.
