The destruction of a relatively significant amount of sample material is necessary, which can be a limitation in the case of artworks.

Is dendrochronology a chronometric dating technique?

Chronometric techniques include radiometric dating and radio-carbon dating, which both determine the age of materials through the decay of their radioactive elements; dendrochronology, which dates events and environmental conditions by studying tree growth rings; fluorine testing, which dates bones by calculating their
