The most suitable types of sample for radiocarbon dating are charcoal and well-preserved wood, although leather, cloth, paper, peat, shell and bone can also be used. Radiocarbon Dating of Single Compounds Isolated from Pottery Cooking Vessel Residues. Stott, A W Berstan, R Evershed, P Hedges, R E M Bronk Ramsey, C and Humm, M J 2001. When pottery is fired, it loses all its previously acquired TL, and on cooling the TL begins again to build up. By comparing this light output with that produced by known doses of radiation, the amount of radiation absorbed by the material may be found.
