Carbon 14 - Research

Dr. Kenneth J. McCallum, professor and head, Department of Chemistry, stands beside equipment located at the Saskatchewan Research Council that is used for carbon 14 radioactive dating.

Bio/historical note: The Carbon 14 radioactive method of determining the ages of substances is carried out on the campus by the Saskatchewan Research Council, and is the only one in Canada. One of the experiments showed there were Indigenous peoples in British Columbia more than 8000 years ago. The method was applied by scientists outside Canada to confirm the age of the famous Dead Sea Scrolls (2000 years old).
