The paper describes our experience using the single aliquot regeneration added dose (SARA) OSL method during a 2-yr period for dating archaeological and geological materials. The principle of the method is outlined and a simple method for testing whether a possible sensitivity change depends on the added dose is shown. Advantages of the SARA method is discussed and results obtained using this method for 15 archaeological samples are compared with TL results. A correlation coefficient of 0.967 was found. The test also included comparison of a SARA dare with an archaeomagnetic date for a brick kiln. Identical results were obtained (1795 +/- 20 AD and 1800 +/- 20 AD, respectively). Similarly. SARA results for 14 sediments are compared with results obtained by TL and IRSL (multiple aliquots)and here the resulting correlation coefficient was 0.983. (C) 1997 Elsevier Science Ltd.
