Welcome

Oxford Authentication Ltd authenticates ceramic antiquities using the scientific technique of thermoluminescence (TL). TL is a dating method for archaeological pottery which can distinguish between genuine and fake antiquities. Here at Oxford Authentication we have specialised in authenticating ceramic antiquities since 1997. Our reports are held in the highest regard and accepted as a stamp of endorsement from museums, auction houses, dealers, collectors and courts of law the world over.

Testing is carried out in our Oxfordshire laboratory by staff trained to the highest standards. We have a worldwide network of over 50 accredited agents, authorised by us to collect samples from your antiquities.
