It is rare to find shutters dating from before the late 17th century and most date from the 18th and 19th centuries.Adjunct Professor Nigel Spooner was awarded a DPhil (Physics, Oxon) in 1993, following which he relocated to establish and head the “Luminescence Dating Laboratory” (LDL) at RSES, Australian National University, Australia. Surface analysis and treatment of extruded fluoride phosphate glass preforms for optical fiber fabrication. 10.1111/jace.14269Arnold, L., Duval, M., Demuro, M., Spooner, N., Santonja, M. Research focussed on environmental dosimetry utilising luminescence induced in artificial and naturally-occurring environmental materials by ionising radiation from natural and man-made sources in the environment. In later periods, when houses had cosier rooms with fireplaces and glazed windows, shutters provided extra draught-proofing and privacy.The common use of fastening bars with security devices implies that shutters were also regarded as protection against intruders.
