The potential of luminescence signals from polymineral fine grains for dating Romanian loess
Researchers from the CENIEH have participated in a special issue of this scientific journal, in which the potential of this dating method for the fields of geology, archaeology and palaeoanthropology is demonstrated. This is a unique compilation entitled Electron Spin Resonance ESR dating in Quaternary studies: evolution, recent advances and applications , comprising 16 original articles signed by authors from a variety of institutions in America, Asia, Europe and Oceania, among whom are several CENIEH researchers, involved in five of the papers. The papers cover a wide variety of applications of the method, to fossil teeth, quartz grains, mollusc shells or corals. Each article includes a direct comparison with another dating method, such as Radiocarbon, Luminescence, Uranium-Thorium or Argon-Argon, thus enabling independent evaluation of how reliable the datings found using ESR are. More than 10 years of ESR. Since the inauguration of the Center in , an ESR laboratory which is an international benchmark has been set up: numerous important studies in the field of human evolution have used it, such as the recent dating work for Homo antecessor in Spain, for Homo naledi in South Africa, and for the most ancient Homo sapiens found outside Africa so far.

After reading physics at Sussex University Ian Bailiff joined the Research Laboratory for Archaeology and the History of Art at Oxford as a postgraduate student and subsequently submitted a research MSc on the development of new luminescence dating techniques. Following a further year working on an instrument development project he came to Durham in as a research assistant on a pottery dating project; following a series of appointments as a Research Fellow he was awarded an SERC Advanced Fellowship, and in was appointed a Lecturer.
