Description

Focusing on the Bronze Age Sant’Abbondio Cemetery at Pompeii, the author shows that the use of trace element analysis in a non-paleonutritional approach represents a new, tangible method of investigating the social dynamics of past communities, offering a level of reliability and consistency that is not always to be found in the material culture.
