Our research concerns the study of archaeological populations, with a particular interest in the ancient Mediterranean, and can be summarised in 6 main lines of research:
Analysis of collagen amino acids aiming to more precise trophic levels identification.
Stable isotope analysis of C, N, S, Sr and O by IRMS to investigate past diet and mobility.
Archaeological database production and 'Big Data' meta-analysis.
Identification of faunal species by characteristic peptide sequences in collagen.
Sezionamento della Dentina
Temporal reconstruction of past childhood diets through stable isotope analysis of dentine increments.
Development and refinement of protocols for stable isotope research.
