Isotopic reconstruction of human diet and animal husbandry practices during the Classical-Hellenistic, imperial, and Byzantine periods at Sagalassos, Turkey.
An isotopic reconstruction of human dietary patterns and livestock management practices (herding, grazing, foddering, etc.) is presented here from the sites of Düzen Tepe and Sagalassos in southwestern Turkey to highlight subtle but distinct variations in these animals. Expand
Beyond affluence: the zooarchaeology of luxury
The statement, by the eighteenth-century economist Adam Smith, that luxuries are all things that are not necessities is too simplistic an approach to be useful within the context of zooarchaeology.Expand
Stable Isotope Evidence for Late Medieval (14th–15th C) Origins of the Eastern Baltic Cod (Gadus morhua) Fishery
The data strongly support the second hypothesis, revealing widespread importation of cod during the 13th to 14th centuries, most of it probably from Arctic Norway, indicating the development of a substantial late medieval fishery. Expand
Pig Domestication and Human-Mediated Dispersal in Western Eurasia Revealed through Ancient DNA and Geometric Morphometrics
The first genetic signatures of early domestic pigs in the Near Eastern Neolithic core zone are revealed and it is demonstrated that these early pigs differed genetically from those in western Anatolia that were introduced to Europe during the Neolithic expansion. Expand
Fish bones and amphorae: evidence for the production and consumption of salted fish products outside the Mediterranean region
Production de garum et salsamenta bien connue dans le monde mediterraneen et atlantique. Largement exportee au Ier s. Mais de plus en plus on decouvre un nombre important de varietes de sauces deExpand
Isotopic examination of links between diet, social differentiation, and DISH at the post-medieval Carmelite Friary of Aalst, Belgium.
Dietary patterns from post-medieval Carmelite friary burial grounds at Aalst show significant variation in the consumption of perhaps meat, but certainly also marine protein between females and males, suggesting that the social and economic changes of the early modern period had a limited effect on everyday life.

Aquatic resources in human diet in the Late Mesolithic in Northern France and Luxembourg: insights from carbon, nitrogen and sulphur isotope ratios
We investigated the contribution of freshwater resources to the diet of seven Late Mesolithic hunter-gatherers (ca. 5300–7000 BC) from Northern France and Luxembourg using stable isotope ratios. InExpand
Middle-Holocene alluvial forests and associated fluvial environments: A multi-proxy reconstruction from the lower Scheldt, N Belgium
Analyses of pollen, plant macrofossils (seeds, fruits, wood and mosses), molluscs, diatoms and vertebrate (mainly fish) remains allowed a detailed reconstruction of a middle-Holocene alluvial forestExpand
Living in times of war: waste of c. 1600 from two garderobe chutes in the castle of Middelburg-in-Flanders (Belgium)
Abstract The material remains and environmental data recovered during a rescue excavation in 2002–03 in the castle of the new town of Middelburg-in-Flanders throw light on the site, region andExpand
The Middle Holocene Shell Mound of El Gouna on the Red Sea (Egypt)
Abstract In the El Gouna (Hurghada) area on the Red Sea of Egypt, a Middle Holocene shell mound from around 5800 B.P. (uncalibrated radiocarbon years before A.D. 1950) has been tested by a restrictedExpand
