Abstract

© 2013 Elsevier Masson SAS. An archaeometric multi-technique approach has been undertaken to date an early industrial (mid-19th century) continuous limekiln in Calders (Catalonia, NE Spain). Dating was achieved combining archaeomagnetic and thermoluminescence methods. Metallographic data, oral and written sources also contributed to the dating discussion. A neighboring conventional (i.e. non-continuous) limekiln was dated using its recorded archaeomagnetic direction.
