In this work some ceramic fragments from the neolithic and medieval period have beenstudied by Thermoluminescence (TL). Six samples of "Stentinello" ceramics found in thearea of Acconia, in the “Piana di Curinga” (Lamezia Terme, Cz, South Italy) dating back tothe VI-IV millenium B.C. and four samples of Nicastro Castle and St. Eufemia Abbey (LameziaTerme, Cz, South Italy) dating back to the 1500 A.D. The samples were analysed by TLusing the Single Aliquot Regenerative (SAR) dose protocol.The so obtained results provided reliable age estimates for the following samples (theItalian labels refer to different archaeological sites in the same valley): Neolithic samples:“Terravecchia”, age range 2700-6500 ± 500-1200 B.C.; “Suveretta”, 4100 ± 700 B.C.; “Romatisi”,5100 ± 400 B.C.. Medieval samples: Nicastro Castle, 1690 ± 60 A.D. ; St. Eufemia Abbey 1600± 50 A.D..The dating results are consistent with the typological characterization of the samplesand in agreement with the historical period to which the fragments are supposed tobelong.
