Surface dating by luminescence: An overview
Daylight radiation resets luminescence 'clock' to zero on rock surfaces, but transmission depends on the transparency of the rock. On burial, surfaces are no longer exposed to daylight and accumulation of trapped electrons takes place till the excavation. This reduction of luminescence as a function of depth fulfils the prerequisite criterion of daylight bleaching. Thus rock artefacts and monuments follow similar bleaching rationale as those for sediments. In limestone and marble, daylight candoi:10.2478/s13386-011-0032-7 fatcat:qyavo7k2c5etdnherismrniohi
