RADIOCARBON DATING OF INDIVIDUAL AMINO ACIDS FROM ARCHAEOLOGICAL BONE COLLAGEN

Abstract:

Since the development of accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) for radiocarbon dating in the late 1970s, its ability to date small samples of bone has been of huge importance in archaeology and Quaternary paleoecology. The conventional approach to sample preparation has been to extract and gelatinize protein, which is then combusted and graphitized for analysis. However, this "bulk protein" can contain a heterogeneous mixture of non-collagenous molecules, including humic acids and other soil co...
