Thus, 1587 is the post quem dating of Shakespeare's play Henry V.That means that the play was without fail written after (in Latin, post) 1587.The proﬁle from one location is then compared with proﬁles ﬁom surrounding sites to determine the geologic history of a larger area.
Unformatted text preview: UJJEIJIIIIIIHE [DEE A Relative Age Dating Activity By Christine Mc Lelland Name: Purpose: In this activity you will learn to determine the sequence of geologic events ﬁom cross- sections of strata (rocks) in a given area. Background: Before absolute dating of rocks was developed in the 20th century, geologists had to rely on relative age dating, which places geologic events in their order of occurrence.
The method begins with the careful drawing and description of strata (the geologic cross section or proﬁle).
This usually requires what is commonly known as a "dating method".
Several dating methods exist, depending on different criteria and techniques, and some very well known examples of disciplines using such techniques are, for example, history, archaeology, geology, paleontology, astronomy and even forensic science, since in the latter it is sometimes necessary to investigate the moment in the past in which the death of a cadaver occurred.
But this method is also useful in many other disciplines.
Historians, for example, know that Shakespeare's play Henry V was not written before 1587 because Shakespeare's primary source for writing his play was the second edition of Raphael Holinshed's Chronicles, not published until 1587.This is admitted because of the simple reason that some botanical species, whether extinct or not, are well known as belonging to a determined position in the scale of time.For a non-exhaustive list of relative dating methods and relative dating applications used in geology, paleontology or archaeology, see the following: Same as geologists or paleontologists, archaeologists are also brought to determine the age of ancient materials, but in their case the areas of their studies are restricted to the history of both ancient and recent humans. j «m L1 11‘ q U ’L VY/V’i Z/ELIC V‘Z/ n in 1:1, I ’10 r 41 4% A” r :_:::::: Youngest Oldest this area history of 1C te the geolog wri Try to ...This activity was selected for the On the Cutting Edge Exemplary Teaching Collection Resources in this top level collection a) must have scored Exemplary or Very Good in all five review categories, and must also rate as “Exemplary” in at least three of the five categories.Principle of crosscutting relations: geologic features, such as faults, and igneous intrusions are younger than the rocks they cut.
