comment Leaching of radiometric material, is it possible?
@David - nice of them to provide a fiducial but doubling the amount of c14 is a pain!

comment Leaching of radiometric material, is it possible?
@David - yes the calibration gets trickier but you probably wouldn't C14 date an artifact from the 60s

comment How do we know that C14 decay is exponential and not linear?
AC's answer below is better - if the atoms/coins are independant and have no way of effecting or signaling each other to decay then exponential is the only possible function. It takes a bit of thinking about to believe it though!

comment Leaching of radiometric material, is it possible?
@jonathon - it doesn't matter, carnivores eat things that recently ate plants. Compared to the 6000yr half life of C14 eating a 2year old deer rather than fresh plants is pretty irrelevant
