Abstract

The gelatin extracted from "The Giant" was measured so as to crosscheck the reliability of C-14 dating of collagen. The results indicate that both methods are consistent, which indicates that the giant died during 4200-4100 cal BP, in the late Longshan Cultural period. Stable isotopic reanalysis on the sample (delta C-13 = -8.40 +/- 1.9 parts per thousand and delta N-15 = 8.84 +/- 2.0 parts per thousand) shows that C4 plants (mainly millet) were a primary source of food for the giant, along with animal proteins which may have come from domestic animals.
