Painting is one of the oldest forms of art in the human civilization; from the primitive cave paintings to those detailed and refined works of the Renaissance. Paintings are typically divided into categories by their genre, for instance, history, portrait, and landscape. Landscape paintings are those, which either only show or place greater emphasis on the natural surroundings such as rivers, mountains, and trees. This genre was popular among the ancient Greeks and Romans but later faded in and out of favor. Landscape paintings in Europe were revived during the 16th century while in East Asia they had already become a separate genre around the 10th century (Landscape Painting in Chinese Art, A Brief History).

It is important to have a chronology to produce a pollen sequence in order to attach ages to particular events and estimate rates of change over time. There are numerous written sources dating back to AD 400 (AD 500-600) from the Romans, Greeks and Egyptians. The main forms of dating I will cover are radiocarbon dating, dendrochronology and tephrachronology. Radioactive dating is a technique used to date materials such as rocks, sediments and artefacts. Walker (2005) states that ‘Not only is the carbon atom the building block of life (…) it also provides us with a means of dating life’.

It’s mainly found in chloride minerals, which is also known as sodium chloride or commonly known as salt.
