Exhaustive review of obsidian hydration dating, including underlying chemistry, rate determination models, temperature controls, and other factors.

In archaeology, absolute dating is usually based on the physical, chemical, and life properties of the materials of artifacts, buildings, or other items that have been modified by humans and by historical associations with materials with known dates (coins and written history).Following death, however, no new carbon is consumed.Progressively through time, the carbon-14 atoms decay and once again become nitrogen-14.The utility of other chronometric methods is also reviewed.

Appendices include lists of several thousand radiocarbon and obsidian hydration dates.
