Changing land use and political economy at neolithic and Bronze Age Knossos, Crete: stable carbon (δ13C) and nitrogen (δ15N) isotope analysis of charred crop grains and faunal bone collagen

Abstract:

Excavations at Knossos have uncovered faunal and archaeobotanical archives spanning the Neolithic and Bronze Age (7 th to 2nd millennia BCE), during which one of Europe’s earliest known farming settlements developed into its first major urban settlement and centre of one of its oldest regional states. Through stable isotope (δ 13C, δ 15N) analysis of seeds and bones (as evidence for the growing conditions of cereal and pulse crops and for the types of forage consumed by livestock), land us...
