Infrared spectroscopy is a well proven tool in the assessment of molecular structures. The presentation elaborates applications of this method to archaeometric questions. The main focus will be set on the prediction of sample age. Currently, dating tools are worked out best for wood. But also the possibilities for other materials are presented.
