Mezmaiskaya Cave has yielded more than 10,000 artifacts, thousands of very well preserved faunal remains, and hominin remains, found in seven Middle Paleolithic (Mousterian) and three Upper Paleolithic levels.
ESR signals of quartz grains in fault gouge have been partially or completely reset by movements on the fault, which allows the dating of the last fault movement.
The error limits on the dates obtained are typically in the range of 5 to 10%.
Commercial dating service For over 15 years the laboratory has undertaken luminescence dating of archaeological materials and sediments on a commercial basis or research basis.
Our standard cost for TL or OSL dating is 650 euro VAT per sample but prices can vary depending on the nature and number of samples.
