The database is divided into five datasets based on method and material: residue analysis of pottery; bulk sample N and C isotope analysis of animal bone; bulk sample N and C isotope analysis of animal bone human bone; osteological analysis of human remains and incremental N and C isotope analysis of human tooth dentine.
