Using these methods, geologists have created a geologic time scale for organizing past times in earth’s history.

Today there are two common practices for dating rocks and strata. Geologists use what they see and some simple strategies to relative date the rock layers found in the Grand Canyon.
The first is called absolute dating, where geologists use radioactive decay to determine the actual age of a rock. Let's say you are a geologist who is tasked with dating the rocks found in the Grand Canyon, and you must do so in the canyon without the aid of any laboratory equipment. Relative dating doesn't really give us an actual 'age,' but it does put things in sequential order.
Once Steno recognized that the fossils he was contemplating (sharks teeth and sea shells) were formed in the sediments of oceans he was able to work out the basic rules of stratigraphy.
Steno formalized the laws of superposition, original horizontality, original continuity and inclusions in his publication entitled states that any inclusion is older than the rock that contains it.
Steno's idea that fossils are older than the rock in which they are found hints at this principle, but Hutton is most often given credit for this principle.states that fossil organisms succeed one another in a definite, irreversible, and determinable order.
