b) Absolute These methods are based on calculating the date of artefacts in a more precise way using different attributes of materials.Room and Board Arrangements: Accommodations are in shared rooms (4-6 beds) located in Municipal Dormitory (Residencia Municipal) in the town of Bedmar. The common areas are cleaned once a week by professional cleaners.Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided 7 days a week at the residence. There will be special recipes for those who have dietary restrictions such as diabetes, allergies or gluten intolerance and vegetarians.The isotope of Potassium-40, which has a half-life of 1.25 Billion years, can be used for such long measurements.Another absolute dating method is thermoluminescence, which dates the last time an item was heated.
