Palaeontologists have uncovered the remains of a huge prehistoric predatory marine reptile.

Your favorite Animal is still there. It's just the name is changed from Brontosaurus to Apatosaurus.

Hate to tell you this but they don't need to use either of those technologies to put a rough estimate on the date.  Its all from the layers the fossil was found in.
