Radiometric dating game
If one knows how much of this radioactive material was present initially in the object (by determining how much of the material has decayed), and one knows the half-life of the material, one can deduce the age of the object.
of carbon-14 dating with other dating methods show it gives consistent results.

any method of determining the age of earth materials or objects of organic origin based on measurement of either short-lived radioactive elements or the amount of a long-lived radioactive element plus its decay product.Radiocarbon dating is one such type of radiometric dating.
