  • The first results of carbon and nitrogen (δC, δN) stable isotope analyses of domestic pig (Sus domesticus Erxl., 1777) remains from three prehistoric sites are presented. Of these, comparison of the datasets from Tell Aqab in Syria and Camlibel Tarlasi in Turkey suggests different dietary patterns, and possibly different pig husbandry practices, at these sites. The study highlights the need for supporting evidence from archaeobotanical and palaeoenvironmental investigations in the… CONTINUE READING
