Dating methods in anthropology
Having it will open up many new avenues of research,” Laid said.
He added that Sammeth opened the door for archaeological research opportunities that employ luminescent dating in novel ways.

“The primary purpose of this research was to determine a date for the skull so we could repatriate the remains with the appropriate Native American tribe,” Lail said.
While radiocarbon dating of bone from archaeological sites is common, the use of luminescent dating is still relatively rare in the United States.
