All the design methods presented by the author comply with the current U.S. building codes. and done extensive research, dating back to the s, on limit. Relative dating determines the age of artifacts or site, as older or younger or the same age as others, but does not produce precise dates.

Absolute dating, methods that produce specific chronological dates for objects and occupations, was not available to archaeology until well into the 20th century. For example, if there is one M7 earthquakes in an area every 1, years, then there will be about 10 M6 earthquakes, M5 earthquakes, and 1, M4 earthquakes during the same 1, years.

Since their initial discovery, research has shown that the actual number of earthquakes is somewhere between 5 and 10 for each change in magnitude.
