Luminescence dating is a technique used to date Quaternary sediments and for determining when ancient materials such as pottery, ceramics, bricks or tiles were last heated. The technique can be applied to material from about 100 to several hundred thousand years old. Hammer in a cylinder so it is fully filled and carefully dig it out. Cover both ends of the cylinder with aluminium foil and/or thick black plastic, and tape it so it is light proof and watertight.4. Avoid sampling in inhomogenous surroundings (stay more than 25 cm away from inhomogenities like gravel beds or bedrock)6. Ensure the sample material cannot move or mix inside the cylinder, by stuffing aluminium foil into both ends of the cylinder. We reserve the right to reject samples if we consider them unsuitable for luminescence dating. Our equipment has a very high efficiency and ultra-low background so can be used to measure tiny amounts of radionuclides. We therefore welcome projects where low-level radioactivity is expected such as sediments from New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.
