Archeologist and TBH Assistant Editor Emily McCuistion wrote Radiocarbon Dating Understood. The exhibit is based on Emily’s master’s thesis, The Camel of Time: Radiocarbon Dating the Lower Pecos Canyonlands, which was completed at Texas State University in 2019. TBH Editor Steve Black was Emily's graduate advisor and exhibit editor, and encouraged both thesis and exhibit projects.

Emily and Steve designed and developed the exhibit for the web, with assistance from Liberal Arts Instructional Technology Services (LAITS) at UT-Austin. TBH Associate Editor Heather Smith (Department of Anthropology, Texas State University) and Raymond Mauldin (Center for Archaeological Research, University of Texas-San Antonio) reviewed the draft and provided helpful suggestions for improvement.
E. Thomas Miller of Kerrville, Texas bequeathed support for this exhibit. Emily's thesis acknowledges many others who helped facilitate her radiocarbon research.
