For example, if a sample is tested and given a radiocarbon date of 1000 BC.
To increase the range of possible dates of a sample, archeologists may calculate the radiocarbon date to two standard deviations.
As a rule, the more standard deviations used, the larger the probable date range for the sample and consequently, the higher the probability is for that sample to fall within the expanded date range.
