Summary:
Monica Carroll, a master's student in geological sciences at Virginia Tech, and colleagues at Virginia Tech and other universities have expanded the dating of marine animals beyond mollusks to brachiopods, and the method has been shown to work back to the time of Aristotle.

BLACKSBURG, Va. — Much about the Earth is unknown—including such things as what influenced the environment or oceans in times before historical records. Rebuilding a lost record of the Earth takes a process much like fitting puzzle pieces together, and one of those pieces is determining the age of things.
