Publications | International Mortar Dating Project
MoDIM continues a year-old tradition of international meetings dedicated to radiocarbon and luminescence dating of archaeological lime mortars and anthropogenic carbonates in general. The underlyi n g theme of MoDIM is the characterization of archaeological lime mortar and lime plaster prior to radiocarbon and luminescence dating. More specifically, the focus of the meeting will b e on methodologies aimed at identifying, isolating and removing potential sources of contamination fo r radiocarbon dating and at overcoming problems of residual geologic signals in insufficiently light-exposed materials for luminescence dating, and on how such procedures may improve the accuracy of age determinations. Therefore, we welcome contributions regarding analytical methods that address the chemical and physical properties of anthropogenic carbonates, including but not limited to FTIR and Raman spectrometry, XRD, XRF, EXAFS, cathodoluminescence, SEM-EDS, electron diffraction, stable isotopes analysis, and thin section petrography; contributions about procedures for carbon recovery and AMS measurements including organics embedded in lime binders , and on protocols for luminescence measurements. Proceedings will be published in a special issue of Radiocarbon.
Historical Mortar Radiation Dates: A New Strategy for Assessing Applicability and Reliability
We all have been programmed from our parents, society, TV, radio, school, church and past lives. Spiritual Dating is about being aware of programming, letting it go and consciously choosing how to date, relate and mate in our modern world. As we evolve and free ourselves from old programming, learn to deeply love and accept ourselves as we are and choose to THRIVE, we feel alive, joyful and excited about life.

The lack of contemporary written sources adds to the uncertainty. Even if humanistic methods, such as archaeological artifacts, coins, documentation of the building technique and style, are implemented to the extreme, on their own they cannot form the base for an objective dating. Earlier researchers have been reasoning intuitively, and the results have been dates varying by several centuries for specific churches. This could not be accepted. Since the age of the churches has not been known, the use of interdisciplinary scientific methods has had high priority within the project.
