New protocol for compound specific radiocarbon analysis of archaeological bones

Abstract:

Rationale

For radiocarbon results to be accurate, samples must be free of contaminating carbon. Sample pre-treatment using an HPLC approach has been developed at the Oxford Radiocarbon Accelerator Unit (ORAU) as an alternative to conventional methods for dating heavily contaminated bones. This approach isolates hydroxyproline from bone collagen, enabling a purified bone-specific fraction to then be radiocarbon dated by accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS).
