Explain carbon dating elaborately.Which particles are used for it?

Carbon dating is a method use to detect the age of things on earth for up to 60000 years. It can not detect the age if the age is more than 60000 years.
In this method substance which has carbon compounds(C-14) decay it self . So the amount of radiation coming from material can be judged for its half life period or any particular age. So using carbon isotope to judge any thing age is called carbon dating
