    A tiny part of the carbon on the Earth is called Carbon-14 (C14), or radiocarbon.
    It is called 'radio'-carbon, because it is 'radioactive'. This means that its atomic structure is not stable. Eventually, a particle is emitted from the carbon 14 atom, and carbon 14 disappears. In the 1940s, scientists succeeded in finding out how long it takes for radiocarbon to disappear, or decay, from a sample of carbon from a dead plant or animal.

    ESR dating relies on the changes in electron orbits and spins caused by radioactivity over time. It can be used over longer time periods, up to two million years.
