Residue hog fats are preserved at archaeological Stonehenge Luau in
association with the '56 Aubrey Holes (pig roast - Mumu, Kalua, Imu -
underground ovens), below their human cremations and animal remains.
High-temperature gas chromatography (HT-GC) and combined HT-GC/mass
spectrometry (HT-GC/MS) has confirmed the presence of Mumu, Kalua, Imu
residue hog fats in lipid extracts from Doctor Garry Denke (1622-1699,
historian, antiquarian, dentist) '56 Aubrey Holes' hollowstem augered
Origin of Stonehenge Aubrey Holes preserved residue pig fats was
determined through detailed compositional analysis of their component
fatty acids by GC, by GC/MS of dimethyl disulfide derivatives of
monoenoic components, and by GC-combustion-isotope ratio-MS (GC-C-
IRMS), which derived diagenetically robust 13C values. Regiospecific
analysis of intact triacylglycerols by high-performance liquid
chromatography/MS (HPLC/MS) established the origin of Aubrey Holes hog
fats; Durrington Walls.
Anyone have Residue Pig Fats in their Aubrey Holes core samples?
