Beyond the baseline: Broadening stable isotopic horizons in zooarchaeology

22nd to 25th March BERLIN

In the last 20 years, stable isotopic measurements of faunal material has been a common feature of archaeozoological investigation into past animal ecologies and interactions between human societies and local environments. The daily growing body of results demonstrates the power of animal tissues to record environmental and climatic change in the past and the adaptation of hunting/herding practices in response (directly or indirectly) to these changes, for example, the emergence of pastoralism. Alongside this, there has been a growing awareness of ethical issues related to sampling heritage collections and our role as custodians to prevent/reduce sample destruction. Methodological advances and BIG data analysis have reduced the need for destructive sampling.

The conference promises to be a very exciting with a researchers representing countries on a global scale. With contributions from archaeozoologists, archaeologists, bioanthropologists but also, ecologists, organic chemists, geochemists, paleontologists and geologists. Multi-perspectives will strengthen our analytical approaches and interpretations. The full scientific conference program is below.
