In this case, even if the foundation of the building is found in the same stratigraphic level as the previous occupation, the two events are not contemporary.
It consists in comparing and matching two or more series of ring widths measured on different trees.
The partial overlap of sets of trees that died at different times allows the construction of average chronological sequences (courtesy Groupe de recherche en dendrochronologie historique; illustration C.
These methods usually analyze physicochemical transformation phenomena whose rate are known or can be estimated relatively well.
This is the only type of techniques that can help clarifying the actual age of an object.
Absolute dating methods mainly include radiocarbon dating, dendrochronology and thermoluminescence.
Stratigraphy Inspired by geology, stratigraphy uses the principle of the superposition of strata which suggests that, in a succession of undisturbed SOILS, the upper horizons are newer than the lower ones.
For example, the oldest human remains known to date in Canada, found at Gore Creek, have been dated using soil stratification.
The bones were buried under (and are therefore older) a layer of ash that resulted from a volcanic eruption dating back to 7000 years BP (Before Present; "present" indicates c. Subsequently, radiocarbon dating, an absolute dating technique, was used to date the bones directly and provided a date of 8250 BP, showing how useful the combined used of relative and absolute dating can be.
Romania`s readiness to absorb ERC grants will be discussed in the framework of a case study.
The level of support in preparing the grant application as well as the implementation of INTERTRAP at Babeş-Bolyai University of Cluj-Napoca Romania will be compared to the RELOS grant (Reducing empiricism in luminescence geochronology: Understanding the origins of luminescence from individual sand grains, ERC-2014-STG, grant agreement No ), a grant in the same research field lead by Dr.
Integrated absolute dating approach for terrestrial records of past climate using trapped charge methods (INTERTRAP) - the blessing and turmoil of implementing for the first time an ERC grant at a Romanian university AA(Interdisciplinary Research Institute on Bio-Nano-Sciences, Babes-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca, Romania; Faculty of Environmental Science and Engineering, Babes-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca, Romania), AB(Nordic Laboratory for Luminescence Dating, Department of Geoscience, Aarhus University, DTU Risø campus, Roskilde, Denmark; Center for Nuclear Technologies, Technical University of Denmark, DTU Risø campus, Roskilde, Denmark) This year marks European Research Council`s (ERC) 10th anniversary.
