Thermoluminescence Analysis of the Clay Core of Bronze Statues: A Re-Appraisal of the Case Studies of Lupa Capitolina and Other Masterpieces in Rome
In this work, we present some new results in applying thermoluminescence (TL) dating to the clay core of bronze statues. This is very important, due to the impossibility of directly dating a metal.

Conventions for Reporting Radiocarbon Determinations
TLDR
Revised conventions for reporting radiocarbon determinations are proposed that have been endorsed by many 14C scientists and would cover the reporting of calibrated dates.
