The burial age of an alluvially deposited cobble pavement at the Tapada do Montinho archaeological site (east-central Portugal) is investigated using optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) dating. Measurements on the cobbles (quartzite clasts) were carried out on intact slices and large aliquots (∼8 mm) of quartz grains (63–300 μm), both recovered from the outer 1.5-mm surface of the cobbles. The recycling ratio, recuperation and dose-recovery tests show that the single-aliquot regenerative… Expand
