Isotopic evidence for Middle Horizon to 16th century camelid herding in the Osmore Valley, Peru
Archaeological and zooarchaeological data indicate that camelid pastoralism was a subsistence and economic mainstay of Middle Horizon and more recent cultures in the Osmore region of southern Peru.Expand
An investigation of the origins of cattle and aurochs deposited in the Early Bronze Age barrows at Gayhurst and Irthlingborough
The Early Bronze Age round barrows at Irthlingborough, Northamptonshire and Gayhurst, Buckinghamshire contained remarkably large quantities of cattle (Bos taurus) remains. At Irthlingborough, atExpand
Introducing δ88/86Sr analysis in archaeology: a demonstration of the utility of strontium isotope fractionation in paleodietary studies
Abstract Isotopic methods are widely used in archaeology to investigate paleodiet. Here, we present a new method to identify trophic level in archaeological human populations and to investigateExpand
Comments on Richards et al., Journal of Archaeological Science 35, 2008 “Strontium isotope evidence of Neanderthal mobility at the site of Lakonis, Greece using laser-ablation PIMMS”
We present an evaluation of the laser ablation Sr isotope data reported by Richards et al. (2008) for a Neanderthal tooth recovered from a site in Greece. Based on an alternative and analyticallyExpand
Fisherfolk and Farmers : Carbon and Nitrogen Isotope Evidence from Middle Horizon Ancón , Peru
This study investigates human dietary patterns and economic trends at the coastal site of Ancón, Peru during the Andean Middle Horizon (550AD–1000AD) using stable isotopic data from 32 individualsExpand
Insights into immigration and social class at Machu Picchu, Peru based on oxygen, strontium, and lead isotopic analysis
Abstract The Inca Empire (AD 1438–1532) made common practice of relocating individuals, households and entire communities throughout their expansive realm for different reasons depending on subjects'Expand
Investigating cultural heterogeneity in San Pedro de Atacama, northern Chile, through biogeochemistry and bioarchaeology.
It is argued that, rather than representing a group of altiplano migrants, the Caspana population existed in the region for some time, and cranial modification styles and mortuary behavior that are markedly distinct from patterns in surrounding areas raise the possibility of cultural heterogeneity and cultural fissioning.

Mobility or migration: a case study from the Neolithic settlement of Nieder-Mörlen (Hessen, Germany)
A combination of stable carbon and nitrogen isotope analysis of collagen and radiogenic strontium isotope analysis of tooth enamel was used to investigate diet and mobility at the early NeolithicExpand
Reconstructing Middle Horizon mobility patterns on the coast of Peru through strontium isotope analysis
The pre-Columbian coastal site of Ancon, Peru frequently has been interpreted as an important outpost of the highland Wari Empire, inhabited by individuals from the sierra and the coast. In order toExpand
