Middle Bronze Age is the period when this type of settlement reaches the widestdiffusion in the area; the river basins are the most frequently inhabited environment, while the better-known lake basins reachonly the second place.Absolute chronology of the sites relies almost completely on dendrochronology with the help of radiocarbon,through the wiggle-matching technique.Note: Many of our articles have direct quotes from sources you can cite, within the Wikipedia article! Even this distinction may be blurred by use of different calendars. —locating these events to specific dates in a chronological era.By comparing the proportion of K-40 to Ar-40 in a sample of volcanic rock, and knowing the decay rate of K-40, the date that the rock formed can be determined.Potassium (K) is one of the most abundant elements in the Earth's crust (2.4% by mass).(within the meaning of a coherent system of numbered calendar years) concern two complementary fundamental concepts of chronology.
Potassium-Argon Dating Potassium-Argon dating is the only viable technique for dating very old archaeological materials.

One out of every 10,000 Potassium atoms is radioactive Potassium-40 (K-40).
These each have 19 protons and 21 neutrons in their nucleus.
