This variation is caused by both natural processes and human activity.
In last Tuesday’s lecture, radiocarbon dating was covered briefly.
It is an essential technology that is heavily involved in archaeology and should be explored in greater depth.

Carbon has unique properties that are essential for life on Earth.
So, we have a “clock” which starts ticking the moment something dies.
Obviously, this works only for things which were once living.
