High-tech Israeli research lab carbon dates with extreme accuracy
The Weizmann Institute’s good works have already made an impact on what we know of history. A 2017 report from Phys.org records an instance where the Dangoor AMS machine was able to change the known date of a Jerusalem tower by nearly a millennium. They wrote:
