The Bayesian linear mixing model SISUS is used to reconstruct reliance on maize and intake of animal protein from the stable carbon (d13C) and nitrogen (d15N) isotope values of 149 directly dated Basketmaker II burials. Maize is the primary dietary staple. d13C values are also enriched by intake of yucca and wild C4 plant foods but these resources are of minor importance in sampled diets. Animal protein intake is low and cottontail rabbits make the greatest contribution to female diets… CONTINUE READING
