Since tree rings provide an annual calendar, and some trees live for thousands of years, by C dating the rings themselves one could correct the radiocarbon dates and calibrate the differences.
The Bristlecone pine trees in the Sierra Nevada mountains made this possible and today there are international tree ring databases and agreed-upon calibration curves.
This is particularly true of marine samples and contemporary shells may seem to be hundreds of years old. When this method was first developed, a fairly large amount of carbon was necessary for dating but use of the AMS accelerator mass spectrometer today necessitates only a few milligrams for analysis.
Every radiocarbon date is written as B. It has been agreed that B. If the date has been calibrated it should be written as cal. Radiocarbon dating is still one of the most widely used archaeological methods around the world.
