Frankfurt Radiocarbon Dates I

  • Reiner Protsch (a1) and Bernhard Weninger (a1)
Extract

Facilities for radiocarbon dating were established at the University of Frankfurt/Main in the Institute of Anthropology. The Radiocarbon Laboratory provides assistance to the Amino-Acid-Dating Laboratory. This list reports on 14C dates measured up to September 1983.

The laboratory is installed in the basement of a three-story building and is equipped with a 2L copper proportional counter filled to 1013 mbar with purified CO2. The counter is protected against cosmic and surrounding radiation by a 3.5 ton lead shield and a copper multiwire anticoincidence ring-counter flushed with purified 90Ar/10CH4. Electronics are of the commercial NIM type. Charcoal and wood samples are treated by standard acid-alkali-acid methods. Bone samples are treated according to the collagen methods described by Berger, Horney, and Libby (1964), Longin (1971), Protsch (1972; 1975), and Protsch and Berger (1973).
