Medieval texts often refer to instruments that could be either armillary spheres or celestial globes.
Historians disagree about the origin and the use of demonstrational armillary spheres, partly because the available evidence is difficult to interpret.
Very few examples of the instrument survive from earlier than the 16th century.
In contrast, science textbooks can hardly be found that do not refer to human or “pre-human” remains 10,000 to millions of years old. C” or “C-14” appear within a quote, they are shown as they were published.) Contrary to popular perception, carbon dating is not a precise answer-all to chronology questions. The narrator indicated that they have samples dated “because they want to know exactly how old the skeleton is.” A famous American colleague, Professor Brew, briefly summarized a common attitude among archaeologists. And if it is completely ‘out of date,’ we just drop it.” Few archaeologists who have concerned themselves with absolute chronology are innocent of having sometimes applied this method.” Although the symposium was held in 1970, the point is still relevant.
This fact is openly recognized by scientists involved in the field. It would seem that practices should have improved as technology advanced—but more recent accounts suggest that the accuracy of the results hasn’t changed much.
