Özet

Examining diagenetic parameters such as the organic carbonate contents and the crystallinity of bone apatite quantify the post-mortem alteration of bone. Burial conditions are one of the factors that can influence the diagenesis process. We studied the changes to the organic and mineral components and crystallinity of human bone remains from five Medieval sites in Turkey: Hakemi Use, Komana, Iznik, Oluz Hoyuk and Tasmasor using Attenuated Total Reflectance Fourier TransformInfrared spectroscopy (ATR-FTIR) and principal component analysis (PCA).
