Régime et société d’après l’analyse des isotopes stables : l’exemple de la population de Can Reinés (Mallorca, Espagne, 600 ap. J.C.).

Garcia, E. and Subirà, M. E. and Richards, M. P. (2004) 'Régime et société d’après l’analyse des isotopes stables : l’exemple de la population de Can Reinés (Mallorca, Espagne, 600 ap. J.C.).', Antropo., 7 . pp. 171-176.

Abstract

This study presents the results of the analysis of carbon, nitrogen and sulphur isotopes of bone collagen extracted from 39 human remains and 20 animal remains, found at an archaeological site on the island of Majorca, Spain. The population studied is from “Can Reinés” (Late Roman necropolis, 600 A.D.). This study analyses the diet during this period, specifically to consider the importance of marine protein in the diet of this people who lived near the sea. We are also interested in examining whether diet is affected by differences in the individual’s sex in this population. The results indicate a diet based primarily on animal protein and terrestrial C3 plant foods. Men have a different diet than women. We also present a preliminary analysis of sulphur isotopes to highlight the mobility of this group.
