But over the past decade, Higham and his team have developed techniques that provide more accurate readings in bones up to 55,000 years old (see Nature 485, 27–29; 2012).

First, they use a chemical pretreatment to remove the contaminating carbon from the collagen in bones, then they measure the minuscule amounts of radiocarbon using a particle accelerator.

The theoretical limit for C-14 dating is 100,000 years using AMS, but for practical purposes it is 45,000 to 55,000 years.

If dinosaur bones are 65 million years old, there should not be one atom of C-14 left in them.

Likewise, radiocarbon dating can provide information on the extent of such mixing.

The processes involved which may mix chemically, physically, or biologically the C atoms of the sample are outlined, and the methods used in practice to reverse this mixing are described.

The most suitable methods depend on the state of preservation of the bone, the type of environment, and the radiocarbon content; bones are classified according to different categories, and the appropriate methods indicated for each category.

“Humans and Neanderthals were living contemporaneously for quite some period of time in different parts of Europe,” says Tom Higham, an archaeologist at the University of Oxford, UK, who led the study.

The long overlap provided plenty of time for cultural exchange and interbreeding, he adds.

For radiocarbon dating to be possible, the material must once have been part of a living organism.
