  • C14 carbon dating: ground-up bone treated with hydrochloric acid
    Rights: The University of Waikato Te Whare Wānanga o Waikato Published 28 June 2017 Size: 3 MB Referencing Hub media

    The ground-up bone is treated with hydrochloric acid, which dissolves out the hard part of the bone. The remaining material goes through a gelatinisation process to free up the bone protein. Filtration during this phase allows contaminants to be successfully removed.
