Differential reliability of 14C AMS ages of Rattus exulans bone gelatin in south Pacific prehistory
Analysis of assemblages of AMS radiocarbon determinations of Rattus exulans bone gelatin samples collected in the south Pacific (New Zealand and Norfolk Island) shows that results from both archaeological and natural sites have an inverse correlation of radiocarbon age with sequence of processing, particularly in IGNS data. Consideration of potential causes of this variation, including differential dietary effects and sample degradation, provides no general explanation. It is hypothesized that...[Show more]
