Stable isotope palaeodietary study of humans and fauna from the multi-period (Iron Age, Viking and Late Medieval) site of Newark Bay, Orkney
We report here on stable carbon and nitrogen isotope measurements of human and faunal bone collagen from the Iron Age, Viking Age, and Late Medieval site of Newark Bay, Orkney, Scotland. We found aExpand

Exploring the relationship between weaning and infant mortality: an isotope case study from Aşıklı Höyük and Çayönü Tepesi.
We measured stable nitrogen isotope ratios in bone collagen of 60 individuals from the early Neolithic (9th-8th millennium Cal. BC) sites of Çayönü Tepesi and Aşıklı Höyük. Our aim was to identifyExpand

Stable Isotope Evidence of Diet at Neolithic Çatalhöyük, Turkey
We report here new evidence for human subsistence from stable isotope analysis of humans and fauna from Catalhoyuk. The analyses complement other lines of subsistence evidence, and indicate that,Expand

Some Sexually Dimorphic Features of the Human Juvenile Skull and their Value in Sex Determination in Immature Skeletal Remains
Abstract Discrete traits of the face and mandible have proved useful in the determination of the sex of juvenile skulls. Since the presentation of traits varies between populations, the approach hasExpand
