Experts can compare the ratio of carbon 12 to carbon 14 in dead material to the ratio when the organism was alive to estimate the date of its death.Radiocarbon dating can be used on samples of bone, cloth, wood and plant fibers.

Editorial note: The evidence for the destruction of Jericho at the time the Bible describes it and the way the Bible describes it is overwhelming.

Archaeologists use the exponential, radioactive decay of carbon 14 to estimate the death dates of organic material.

At any particular time all living organisms have approximately the same ratio of carbon 12 to carbon 14 in their tissues.

When an organism dies it ceases to replenish carbon in its tissues and the decay of carbon 14 to nitrogen 14 changes the ratio of carbon 12 to carbon 14.

This technique is not restricted to bones; it can also be used on cloth, wood and plant fibers.
