Applications of Bayesian Statistics to Luminescence Dating


The objective of my PhD project is to apply Bayesian statistics to luminescence dating to enable a combined analysis of conventional archaeological dates with luminescence dates produced for a sequence of samples. The dating contexts examined will include certain classes of artefact (e.g. pottery, brick, and burnt flint) and burial media (e.g. sediment).
