    Radiometric dating or radioactive dating is a technique used to date materials such as rocks or carbon, in which trace radioactive impurities were selectively incorporated when they formed. The method compares the abundance of a naturally occurring radioactive isotope within the material and the abundance of its decay products, which form at a known constant rate of decay. ^ "Mesoamerican Long Count calendar & invention of the zero concept" section cited to Diehl, p. ^ Haughton, p. The earliest recovered Long Count dated is from Monument 1 in the Maya site El Baúl, Guatemala, bearing a date of 37 BCE. ^ .

Radiocarbon dating (also referred to as carbon dating or carbon dating) is a method for determining the age of an object containing organic material by using the properties of radiocarbon, a radioactive isotope of carbon.

The method was developed in the late s at the University of Chicago by Willard Libby, who received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work.

Radiocarbon dating is an ideal method (Taylor, ), but it depends upon an organic componentsuch as charcoal, wood, bone, or other humic substancebeing incorporated within the eroded material or Author: R.

30 Cited by: Archaeologists want to place the Long Count dates into the European calendar so there is an understanding of when things happened in the Maya world relative to historic events elsewhere. Correlation also allows the rich historical record of the Maya to be compared with other sources of environmental, climate and archaeological data calibrated.

0 (zero) is a number, and the numerical digit used to represent that number in fulfills a central role in mathematics as the additive identity of the integers, real numbers, and many other algebraic a digit, 0 is used as a placeholder in place value systems.

"The gold standard of introductory books on the ancient Maya." ―Expedition. The Maya has long been established as the best, most readable introduction to the New World’s greatest ancient civilization. Coe and Houston update this classic by distilling the latest scholarship for the general reader and student.

Only recently has this technology been applied within Maya archaeology, however, in part because the Mayan calendar provides a much greater resolution in dating archaeological events than is possible with radiocarbon data.

The Long Count in particular allows for the assignment of some events relative to each other, accurate to the day. Thompson refused to accept the Olmec Long Count date as being the same dating system used by the ancient Maya.

Population estimates have been produced based on a count of structures, giving a result of 8,–10, spread over an area of approximately km². Population estimates based on a count of subterranean storage chambers known as chultuns produce a figure of 5,–10, Both estimates refer to the maximum population in the Terminal Classic.

The system is based on multiples of 20 beginning with the kin (1 day) uinal (20 kins or 20 days), tun (18 uninals or days), katun (20 tuns or days), and baktun (20 katuns ordays).

Continuing to uncritically employ a handful of young radiocarbon dates from the early decades of radiocarbon dating as support for the claim of elephants at BC is intellectually dishonest. Last time I checked, AMS dates were about $ each (I also seem to recall that the price has recently dropped).
