For example, a "Tang" dynasty item may show an age of 2000 years.

This would expose the fact that it was artificially irradiated.

With Chinese ceramics this would mean that only ceramics older than the Qing dynasty can be measured properly. However, this again means that short-term measuring is simply not completely reliable. in the more recent past in parts of the Chinese world there were lots of shops specialized in doing various examinations, including X-raying for general practitioners or physicians, who did not have the necessary expertise or equipment. Personally I feel uncomfortable with this method of dating.

Although now many seem to have their own X-ray machines, I am sure that there are still many of those old shops to be found. Like Radiocarbon Dating that has been used for decades in archaeology for dating organic materials, it is based on an axiom.

The intensity of the light is proportional to the time during which natural radiation energy accumulated in the substance.

Powder samples (from pottery and bronze cores) are mixed with acetone and allowed to settle, so that fine grains, approximately 1/100mm. These grains are deposited and dried onto aluminium discs (for fine-grain analysis) or rhodium (for pre-dose analysis).By comparing the glow-curves we can calculate the dose of radiation absorbed by the piece during its lifetime.Radioactive measurements on the clay tells us how much radiation the piece is receiving each year.For both pieces: curve (a) is the TL emitted by a sample of powder taken from the object, curve (b) is a laboratory induced glow-curve curve (c) is the background.

The ancient piece : (a) is way above the background (c), and approximately midway between background and (b) The modern piece : (a) is only just above the background (c) and way below (b) Porcelain and certain other types of clay cannot be tested using the fine-grain method. The TL reader is programmed to measure changes in the 110C peak of quartz (the pre-dose peak) in the clay.

Any remaining powder is dried and used for radioactivity measurements to complete the dating calculation. When the glue is dry, they are cut into slices 1/4mm thick with a fine diamond blade. Each slice is soaked in acetone after cutting to remove the glue. The remaining core is crushed and used for radioactive analysis to complete the dating calculation.

Fragments of pottery from excavation of four archaeological sites in Taquari Valley, close to Lajeado, State of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil have been dated by thermoluminescence. After usual crushing, sieving, immersing in HCl solution and then in HF solution, accumulated dose, Dac, or equivalent or paleodose has.… continue reading »
