You Are What You Eat: Changing diet over the Jomon-Yayoi transition in western Japan
If you have a question about this talk, please contact T.S. Thompson.
This research project examines how diet changed during and after the Jomon- Yayoi cultural transition, roughly 3,000 years ago, in the western part of Japan. By using stable carbon and nitrogen isotope analyses of human bone collagen, it is possible to gain direct information about what individuals ate during the last 20 or so years of their lives. The primary use of such information in this project is to gauge the relative importance of available food resources. Although previous research has suggested that this transition is represented by the aquatic to terrestrial shift seen during most agricultural transitions, the work presented in this paper indicates that it is in fact more complex than this.
