Question: How do I get something carbon dated?

Radiocarbon dating is the most common method by far, according to experts. This method involves measuring quantities of carbon-14, a radioactive carbon isotope — or version of an atom with a different number of neutrons. Carbon-14 is ubiquitous in the environment.

How much does it cost to carbon date an item?

Prices start at just $126 for radiocarbon analysis of previously prepared graphite, and increase to $460 for a standard analysis including a common extraction protocol (used for sub-fossil charcoal, peat, seeds and others).
