Abstract:
The stable isotope values of the early Anglo-Saxons (410-700 AD) in Britain are used to assess dietary variability across a culture group. A total of 801 bone collagen samples from 15 inhumation cemeteries and 4 settlements were analysed for stable isotopes. The universality of human diet in a single cultural group, in the same time period, at a variety of sites is questioned. To address this issue, stable isotope results from Anglo-Saxon inhumations were compared with six different types of burial evidence: sex, age, height, body position, grave orientation and grave goods.
