Question: Is thermoluminescence dating expensive?

Thermoluminescence emits a weak light signal that is proportional to the radiation dose absorbed by the material. It is a type of luminescence dating. The technique has wide application, and is relatively cheap at some US$300–700 per object; ideally a number of samples are tested. Sediments are more expensive to date.

What is the difference between a relative and chronometric dating technique?

Relative dating methods reveal the tem- poral order of a sequence of materials, objects or events, disclosing whether these occurred before, contemporarily or after other materials, objects or events. Absolute, or chronometric dating methods reveal the age, measured in calendar years, of materials, objects or events.
