AbstractResults of thermoluminescence (TL) and infrared stimulated luminescence (IRSL) measurements are presented for two stacked colluvial deposits from Natal. A radiocarbon date for bulk organic matter in the A horizon of the soil formed within the surface of the lower unit provides a means of assessing the suitability of various luminescence procedures for such material. The overlying colluvium contains grains bleached to varying extents, as shown by the range of EDs for the coarse-grain feldspar separate obtained using the single-aliquot IRSL method. For this sample all age estimates (either by IRSL or TL) are too large compared with the radiocarbon age, indicating that even the IRSL signal was not zeroed in all grains before they were buried. -from Authors
