Ko te tikanga radiocarbon dating te taunakitanga nui hei whakatau i te taenga o te tangata ki Aotearoa i te wā 1250–1300 AD. Mai i tōna putanga mai i te tekau tau atu i 1950, kua nui ngā mohiotanga mō tana whakamahinga ki Aotearoa nei. Hei tauira, kua mōhio ngā kaimātai putaiao, he māmā ake te ine i te pakeke o ētahi mea (pēnei i te anga moa), tērā i te ine i ētahi atu (pēnei i ngā kōiwi o ngā kararehe ka kai i te kiko me te otaota). I ngā tau tōmuri o te tekau tau atu i 1990 i inea ētahi anga moa i kitea i Te Wairau mā te radiocarbon dating i te Taiwhanga Pūtaiao Radiocarbon i Waikato (Waikato Radiocarbon Dating Laboratory).
