This paper presents an overview of recent advances in luminescence dating of cold-climate, predominantly Late Glacial (Weichselian), aeolian sand and loess deposits. These dates are compared with the results of conventional radiocarbon and AMS-dating of palaeosols and other stratigraphic marker horizons.There still are various uncertainties in the interpretation of luminescence ages due to methodological problems, difficulties in field extrapolation of stratigraphic relationships, and limited independent chronological control
