Adventures in archaeological science: an exploration of oxygen and strontium isotopic variability on a micro- to macro-scale

James, Hannah

Description

Isotopic analysis of human remains has become a key scientific technique employed to gather direct evidence of the diet and mobility of past populations. Geographic variation in the isotopic ratios for two elements in particular, oxygen (O) and strontium (Sr), provides a basis for measuring human mobility between regions with differing isotopic signatures. Human tooth enamel acts as a time capsule, locking in the signatures of childhood food and water, so is often the target of isotopic...[Show more]
