By allowing the establishment of geological timescales, it provides a significant source of information about the ages of fossils and the deduced rates of evolutionary change.
Radiometric dating is also used to date archaeological materials, including ancient artifacts.
This usually requires what is commonly known as a "dating method".

Thus, 1587 is the post quem dating of Shakespeare's play Henry V.
