Abstract:
Comparative tests on 159 bone samples from four sites in Orkney were run. Results suggested that the diet of prehistoric people is more reliably reconstructed from stable carbon isotope ratio analysis than from trace elements (calcium, strontium, zinc, magnesium). A mixed marine/terrestrial diet was indicated by the stable carbon isotope analysis and also by stable nitrogen isotope ratios.
