There are several other dating techniques employed in archaeology. Some of these include: fission-track dating, paleomagnetic and archaeomagnetic dating, obsidian hydration dating, and thermoluminescence dating. Many of these techniques are still experimental, or have not found wide acceptence in archaeology yet, hence they have not been discussed here. For more information on dating techniques consult:
