Question: What type of archaeological materials could be dated using the thermoluminescence method What is the time range for this dating method?

How many years back can thermoluminescence date an object?

Its a very popular dating method in archaeology because not only can it date pottery, the type of material we find the most when excavating, but it can also date further back than 50,000 years unlike radiocarbon dating. That, and it much cheaper in comparison to other dating methods.
