Reading scientific literature about dating carved objects, not made of organic material, I have found that in the majority of the cases the task is
carried out using indirect methods.
For instance the objects are dated from the context they are found, the layers of sediment the archaeologists take the objects from.
Another way is by checking stylistic characteristics of the objects with others that have already determined their age about.
Therefore, it is crucial to know exactly where the stones were found to check their authenticity.
it is not credible if they were just found thrown on certain place of the woods soil at surface. If the objects are authentic they must be found
buried and somebody, who uncovered them, must reveal at what depth were found.
If there are ceramic objects that were found at the same level of the stones they can help to date the stones by association.
Any pottery can be dated using the method of thermoluminescence, since in each of the different tasks along a ceramic is made there is variation of
the termoluminiscense properties of its surfaces.
Thanks for your attention
