In 2007 a ceremonial complex representing the Globular Amphora Culture was discovered in Kowal (the Kuyavia region, Poland). Radiocarbon dating demonstrated that the human remains associated with the complex are of similar antiquity, i.e., 4.105 ± 0.035 conv. and 3.990 ± 0.050 conv. Kyrs. After calibration, this suggests a period between 2850 and 2570 BC (68.2% likelihood), or more specifically, 2870 to 2500 BC (95.4% likelihood). Morphological data indicate that the skeleton belonged to a male… Expand
Terrestrial diet in prehistoric human groups from southern Poland based on human, faunal and botanical stable isotope evidence
TLDR
Stable carbon and nitrogen isotope analyses of animal and human bones from south-eastern Poland show high levels of plant proteins in the diet, and it is concluded that Miechow site societies were egalitarian in this respect. Expand
Optimizing FTIR method for characterizing diagenetic alteration of skeletal material
Abstract Diagenetic alterations may limit the potential use of archaeological bones and teeth as a reliable source of information about the origin and movement of people and animals, their diet andExpand
Resilience and local dietary adaptation in rural Poland, 1000–1400 CE
Abstract In Europe during the medieval period, new constraints were introduced to the balance of people’s food production, distribution and consumption. As a proxy indicator of diet, stable isotopeExpand

The Late Upper Paleolithic skeleton Villabruna 1 (Italy): a source of data on biology and behavior of a 14,000 year-old hunter.
TLDR
The results suggest intense unimanual activity, possibly linked to repeated throwing movements in hunting, and the combined effect of mobile lifestyle and mountainous terrain, as far as the femur is concerned, suggest the last hunter and gatherers from the alpine region. Expand
Stable Isotope Analysis and Dental Evidence of Diet at the Mesolithic–Neolithic Transition in Ukraine
Bone collagen stable carbon isotope values obtained from late Mesolithic and earlier Neolithic skeletal remains from the Dnieper Rapids region of Ukraine confirm an overall dietary equivalenceExpand
Ancient DNA, Strontium isotopes, and osteological analyses shed light on social and kinship organization of the Later Stone Age
TLDR
Insight is gained into a Late Stone Age society, which appears to have been exogamous and patrilocal, and in which genetic kinship seems to be a focal point of social organization. Expand
Stable isotope analysis in Neolithic Greece and possible implications on human health
TLDR
Evidence is corroborated that diet cannot be excluded as a contributing factor to the observed anaemic conditions, which can possibly be attributed to iron deficiency anaemia, and suggests that Neolithic Greece, regardless of geographic location, was occupied by agricultural groups with primarily terrestrial subsistence strategy with only occasional exploitation of animal and marine protein resources.

Stable strontium isotopes in human teeth and bone: a key to migration events of the late Roman period in Bavaria
Abstract After the Romans had left their former province “Raetia II” (today southern Bavaria) in AD 488, the hitherto unknown tribe of “baiovarii” (Bavarians) was first recorded in AD 551. CurrentExpand
Preservation assessment of Miocene–Pliocene tooth enamel from Tugen Hills (Kenyan Rift Valley) through FTIR, chemical and stable-isotope analyses
Abstract We investigated fossil tooth enamel of mammals and crocodiles from two Mio-Pliocene East-African formations (Lukeino and Mabaget Fms) using infrared spectroscopy and chemical andExpand
Isotopic evidence for age-related immigration to imperial Rome.
TLDR
This study demonstrates that migration was not limited to predominantly single adult males, as suggested by historical sources, but rather a complex phenomenon involving families, consistent with historical data. Expand
The Mesolithic-Neolithic Transition in Portugal: Isotopic and Dental Evidence of Diet
Paired radiocarbon (AMS) and stable isotope (δ13C and δ15N) analyses of human bone collagen from Mesolithic and Neolithic Portuguese skeletons suggest a marked change of diet just prior to 7000 BP atExpand
Preliminary evidence for medieval Polish diet from carbon and nitrogen stable isotopes
TLDR
Sex-based differences in δ15N ratios indicate that men consumed relatively more animal products (meat or dairy) than did women, and contribute to a more complete picture of dietary adaptation and social organization in medieval Europe. Expand
Stable isotopes and dietary adaptations in humans and animals at pre-pottery Neolithic Nevalli Cori, southeast Anatolia.
TLDR
It is concluded that animals kept under cultural control obviously had a dietary spectrum different from their free-ranging relatives, whereby the overall low delta(15)N-signatures in both humans and livestock might result from the consumption of protein-rich pulses. Expand
