WS-1. Sampling Up & Down the Alps, Switzerland and Italy

All human remains included in the project will be anthropologically studied in order to estimate sex, age-at-death, and possible presence of pathological conditions. We will then collect from each individual bone and dental samples to be analyzed for ancient DNA and stable isotope ratios. Faunal remains from each site will also be selected according to their taxonomy, sampled and isotopically analyzed in order to estimate the isotopic baseline of each site.
