5th-9th December 2016, Aberystwyth Luminescence Research Laboratory (ALRL), Aberystwyth University, UK

Course presented by: Prof Helen Roberts, Prof Geoff Duller and Prof Stephen Tooth

Luminescence dating is a rapidly evolving field, and increasingly encompasses a range of techniques and signals used to derive a numerical chronology. The choice of luminescence technique selected for dating depends upon the materials available for dating, the timescale being considered, the precision required, and the depositional setting from which the sample is taken. This course seeks to provide practical training for participants wishing to design and undertake their own luminescence dating projects applied to archaeological and geological sedimentary deposits, and those who wish to gain a better understanding of the method in order to be able to assess published data. Previous participants include PhD students, academic staff, technical staff and others with an interest in finding out more about the capabilities of the technique. The course costs £600 (including all printed materials and laboratory costs, but excluding accommodation and meals).
