Quality The field samples were located using a satellite image map and a Russian topographic map, and are estimated to be plus or minus 30 metres of any given grid reference. The OSL data were generated from the RLAHA (Research Laboratory for Archaeology and History of Art) at Keble Road Oxford, under Dr Ed Rhodes.

However, the data available for download are only "geochemistry for sample dosimetry" provided by Damian Gore. The quality of the spreadsheets are poor as they have not been adequately explained.
