Abstract:
Examines the relationships between gross preservation, histological preservation, bone size and the ability to amplify short fragments of mitochondrial DNA in 323 goose humeri from the Anglo-Saxon site at Flixborough. Bone size was not a good predictor of the presence of amplifiable DNA, but there was a significant association between both gross and histological preservation and DNA survival. This suggests that it is worthwhile to preferentially select morphologically well-preserved bones for ancient DNA studies. These tests have previously been conducted on mammalian archaeological bone, which provides a stronger relationship between DNA survival and histological preservation.
