Aspartic acid racemization as a dating tool for dentine: A reality
Given the interest in dating sediments from numerous caves, lakes and fluvial terraces containing fossils and lithic components in Europe, here we provide a complete revision of the amino acid racemization (AAR) (aspartic acid in dentine) dating method in vertebrates. To examine the reliability of this method, which is based on a straightforward sample preparation (previous 3.5kDa dialysis), we used a range of dental material. We examined human dentine collagen from living donors and remains...[Show more]
