E rua ngā taiwhanga pūtaiao radiocarbon ki Aotearoa – ko tētahi nā te Geological and Nuclear Sciences kei te Taiwhanga Pūtaiao o Rafter i Te Awakairangi, ko tētahi kei te whare wānanga o Waikato i Kirikiriroa. E ai ki ngā kaimatai whaipara tangata, ko te radiocarbon dating te tikanga nui rawa mō te ine i te pakeke o tētahi mea. Ka taea te ine i te pakeke o ngā mea matūwaro tatū rawa ki ngā tau e 50,000. Mā te tohunga me ngā taputapu hōu rawa ka puta ngā hua tika i tēnei tikanga ine pakeke.
