This study focuses on early medieval buildings in England and in France, specifically on those displaying the presence of brick in their masonry. The purpose was to determine whether medieval builders reused Roman salvaged building materials or if the bricks used were contemporary to the building under construction. Thus luminescence dating was applied to bricks sampled from 11 standing Anglo-Saxon or Carolingian churches. The luminescence dates show that the two types of practice were in use in both countries. Where contemporary brickmaking appears to be the case, the study also provided a more precise chronology of the buildings. [less ▲]

St Martin’s church, Angers, is emblematic of the problems raised in pre-12th century history of architecture. In view of the importance of this building, it was necessary to attempt to define its dating and this study particularly focuses on its bell-tower. In addition to the conclusion resulting from the interpretation of written sources and typological criteria positioning the construction of the site at the beginning of the 11th century, not only a significant number of 14C dates were carried out on charcoals from the masonry structures, but also independent dating by archaeomagnetism and thermoluminescence were performed on bricks from the bell-tower. The whole results from these three different methods agree and indicate the lower level of the bell-tower was likely built in the 9th century, disputing evidence to the theory of construction in the 11th century of the church. Presented here are the detailed results obtained from the thermoluminescence (TL) dating analysis. [less ▲]

Ceramic Building Material (CBM) is often present in religious buildings of the pre-Norman period. The origin of the ceramic material is uncertain, indeed they have often been considered as salvaged Roman material from abandoned, neighbouring sites. In order to review this long accepted hypothesis, we propose to apply the dating method of luminescence to ceramic material with the aim of identifying the date of manufacture of the material. Moreover, if the material appears to be contemporary to the construction, then the results could contribute to the dating of the original building and to the evaluation of its phasing. [less ▲]
