Abstract

The age of fragments of the ancient pottery sample from Chukhur Gabala archeological site in Gabala district of Azerbaijan has been estimated by employing Thermoluminescence dating (TL) method. The annual dose rate was obtained using γ-spectrometer with a hyper-pure germanium detector and it was 2.741±0.121 mGy/year. The age of the sample was calculated by an additive dose method as 2230±510 years which are in line with the stratigraphically estimated age of this area.
