Abstract The Nawamis are sandstone-built circular structures, located at several sites across Southern Sinai, Egypt. They are thought to be family tombs, created by the nomadic people that inhabited the area. Archaeological age estimates fall within the Early to Late Bronze Age. Here an interesting suite of nine OSL dates of three stone pieces has been resulted, from two Nawamis at Gebel Gunna and Ain Khodra fields. Single aliquot regeneration OSL of quartz grains provided the accumulated dose…

OPTICALLY STIMULATED LUMINESCENCE DATING USING QUARTZ: REMARKS AND A PLEA FOR FAIRNESS

The optical stimulated luminescence (OSL) dating is a steadily developed method in the fields of archaeology, geoarchaeology and earth sciences. The trapped electrons in lattice defects of suitable

An improved multiple-aliquot regenerative-dose (MAR) procedure for post-IR IRSL dating of K-feldspar

In optical dating, multiple-aliquot dating methods have been considered inferior to single-aliquot methods, due to difficulties inherent to in between-aliquot normalisation. In this study, we propose
