Archaeologists have long dated sites by the visual appearance of pottery fragments found around the site.The new analytical technique will allow archaeologists to more accurately determine the age of pottery and, by extension, the age of associated artifacts and sites.Moira Wilson of the University of Manchester and her team document how “rehydroxlation dating” has so far dated objects up to 2000 years old, and they believe it could extend back as far as 10, 000 years.“Given the number and intensity of [dating] debates in archaeology, there is a huge gap in the field for this,” Wilson told

This is where pottery comes in, particularly decorated pottery—which, luckily, is common on many Southwestern sites after about A. Some parts of the southwest, such as the Cibola region on the Colorado Plateau, have very precise ceramic chronologies.

Pottery is the first synthetic material ever created by humans.

The term refers to objects made of clay that have been fashioned into a desire shape, dried, and either fired or baked to fix their form.

Dendrochronology, or tree-ring dating, is one of the best tools available to Southwestern archaeologists, but it requires wood from certain tree species, such as oak or Ponderosa pine.

If the residents of a particular village used different species for construction, or if wood beams were not preserved at a particular site, dendrochronology is probably not an option for site dating.
