Wetwang : dietary equalities in an Iron Age population.

Jay, M. (2004) 'Wetwang : dietary equalities in an Iron Age population.', CBA Yorkshire Forum. . pp. 30-33.


Human and animal bone samples have been taken from the Iron Age population at Wetwang Slack in East Yorkshire in order to analyse the stable isotopes of carbon and nitrogen from extracted collagen. The resulting data are interpreted in relation to diet. Human intra-group comparisons have been made according to sex, age, status and site phase and the results suggest that the people were consistent in their normal dietary habits throughout the population. The diet had a relatively high animal protein content and no indication of a regular marine constituent.
