Budd, P. and Millard, A. and Chenery, C. and Lucy, S. and Roberts, C. (2004) 'Investigating population movement by stable isotope analysis : a report from Britain.', Antiquity., 78 (299). pp. 127-141.
Stable isotopes present in local ground water get into people's teeth before they are 12 years old, and act as a signature to the area where they grew up (and drank the water). In a review of recent work in Britain the authors show the huge potential of this method for detecting population movement – and thus ultimately for investigating questions of migration, exogamy and slavery.
