Thermoluminescence (TL) research was focused on heated pottery and ceramics, burnt flints, baked hearth sediments, oven stones from burnt mounds and other heated objects.[1]

TL can be used to date unheated sediments.[2]

TL dating of light-sensitive traps in geological sediments of both terrestrial and marine origin became more widespread.[3]
