AbstractWide variations in D/Lasp values are exhibited in a series of bone samples of assumed similar age associated with a suite of 14C determinations from stratified contexts in a late Holocene archaeological site. In this group of bone samples, major differences in D/Lasp ratios appear to be correlated primarily with variability in amino acid nitrogen content and GlY/Glu ratios.
