Event details

The way that hunter-gatherer groups interact with each other and build their networks is one of the hottest topics in archaeology worldwide. The study of mobility offers the unique opportunity to tackle it focusing on the actors. This talk is meant to share the experiences of using widely used biomolecular tools (oxygen and strontium isotopes), powerful analytical approaches (machine learning isoscaping and probabilistic assignment), and material culture to study paleomobility in the southernmost region of America, the Patagonia region.
