How do scientist date fossils? There are two main methods for dating fossils. The first is relative dating which examines the layers of rock around the fossil to find an approximate date.
what are the pros and cons of using relative dating?
The method of reading the order is called stratigraphy layers of rock are called strata. Relative dating does not provide actual numerical dates for the rocks. Next time you find a cliff or road cutting with lots of rock strata, try working out the age order using some simple principles. Sedimentary rocks are normally laid down in order, one on top of another.
