Research Topics

A new research project, called the Isotopic Reconstruction of Human Migration, from Australia National University, has mapped strontium isotopes taken from 60 soil samples and 48 rock samples around Israel.  Strontium isotopes are found in most soil, and eventually enter human and animal bones and teeth.  Thus, one can trace where an ancient person or animal has been by comparing the strontium isotopes in their remains with the strontium signatures from sites around Israel.  The database will allow archaeologists and scholars to track the migration patterns of ancient humans and animals.
