Mapping of bioavailable strontium isotope ratios in France for archaeological provenance studies

Willmes, Malte; Bataille, Clement P; James, Hannah F; Moffat, Ian; McMorrow, Linda; Kinsley, Leslie; Armstrong, Richard; Eggins, Stephen; Grün, Rainer


Strontium isotope ratios (⁸⁷Sr/⁸⁶Sr) of archaeological samples (teeth and bones) can be used to track mobility and migration across geologically distinct landscapes. However, traditional interpolation algorithms and classification approaches used to generate Sr isoscapes are often limited in predicting multiscale ⁸⁷Sr/⁸⁶Sr patterning. Here we investigate the suitability of plant samples and soil leachates from the IRHUM database ( to create a bioavailable ⁸⁷Sr/⁸⁶Sr map...[Show more]
