His grave was the richest from this period (the early Bronze Age) ever found in Britain and contained the country’s first gold objects.
By comparing this light output with that produced by known doses of radiation, the amount of radiation absorbed by the material may be found.
Most mineral materials, including the constituents of pottery, have the property of thermoluminescence (TL), where part of the energy from radioactive decay in and around the mineral is stored (in the form of trapped electrons) and later released as light upon strong heating (as the electrons are detrapped and combine with lattice ions).
