Direct dating of archaeological pottery by compound-specific 14C analysis of preserved lipids


Direct dating of archaeological pottery by compound-specific 14C analysis of preserved lipids



Analytical Chemistry Washington 75(19): 5037-5045



DOI: 10.1021/ac020743y

A methodology is described demonstrating the utility of the compound-specific 14C technique as a direct means of dating archaeological pottery. The method uses automated preparative capillary gas chromatography employing wide-bore capillary columns to isolate individual compounds from lipid extracts of archaeological potsherds in high purity (>95%) and amounts (>200 micro g) sufficient for radiocarbon dating using accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS).
