Abstract [en]

Investigation of human movement in the past has been of great interest in archaeology. Direct measurements of past mobility have become possible through the application of strontium isotope analysis on human skeletal remains; during the last few years, a growing attention has been paid to the stable isotope of sulfur – δ34S. Not until now, there has been no attempt to compare the two methods: strontium analyses – 87Sr/86Sr – on hydroxylapatite, and δ34S- analyses on collagen; in analyzing the very same objects to track mobility patterns. 

   In this paper the outcome and conclusions of two different studies will be compared: one using the strontium isotope method and another on using the sulfur stable isotope method, both investigating material from Falbygden in western Sweden - a cultural and natural landscape with several unique features.

   This study shows that the differences between the two methods might cause different conclusions.
