Archaeologists have long used carbon-14 dating (also known as radiocarbon dating) to estimate the age of certain objects.

When a volcano erupts, hot, molten rock (called “lava”) from deep inside the Earth is released. Elements are the “building-blocks” of the universe (for example, water is made from the elements hydrogen and oxygen).The test results ranged from between 340,000 to 2.8 million years old!Other scientists collected samples from cooled lava flows from Mt Ngauruhoe, in New Zealand.To test this method, some scientists gathered samples from hardened lava at Mount St Helens, which erupted most recently in the early 1980s.

The samples, which came from rocks that formed between 19, were sent to a lab and were “dated” using the potassium-argon (K-Ar) method.

These rocks are If this method doesn’t work on rocks the ages of which we know, how can we trust it to work on rocks of unknown age?
