This is one of Scotland's oldest and most historic repertory theatres.The building itself was constructed in 1900 but it is part of a much longer history of theatre in Perth dating back to 1589.Here we exploit this capability and present a method for reassembling the soluble collagen peptides in archaeological bones and dating them.We treated the acid fraction generated during the demineralization of the bone by desalting and neutralizing the solution by dialysis. Unfortunately, in some bones, poor preservation of the insoluble collagen excludes the possibility of dating.
We used FTIR spectroscopy to determine that the precipitated material is indeed collagen.
These peptides are soluble in the acid used to dissolve the bone mineral.
It is known that under appropriate conditions, collagen has the ability to self-assemble.
