My new paper is out today on isotopic analyses at the amazing early medieval cemetery of Finglesham in Kent in Arch&Anth Sciences @SpringerAnthro…

Summary 👇
#earlymedieval #medievaltwitter #archsci #isotopes #Archaeology 1/9 Image
I analysed bones & teeth from 46 individuals @ Finglesham to look @ where they grew up, what they ate as kids & if that had changed in adulthood. I was interested in if social status or gender made any difference in whether someone was a migrant to Kent or what they ate. 2/9 Image
I found that childhood diet (tooth roots) vs adult diet (ribs = ~10yrs before death) were subtly different, with a wider range of resources being eaten in early life vs later in life when they were presumably living in & around Finglesham, this links with mobility & gender. 3/9 Image

'Inks and Paints of the #MiddleEast: A Handbook of #Abbasid Art Technology', @joumajnouna's new book, is AMAZING! 🎨🖌️📖

And here's why: a thread touching on #Manuscripts, #MedievalMedicine, #GlobalMiddleAges, etc. (1/12)
Note: this informative, accessible (and, extra bonus, beautiful) handbook is a good read for historians of all periods - not just medievalists! - but it's especially relevant for medievalists, archaeologists, conservators, artists, material scientists, etc. (2/12)
And it should be essential reading for anyone working on/interested in:
- Manuscript studies #Manuscripts
- History of medicine & pharmacy #MedievalMedicine #MedMed #HistMed
- The transfer of knowledge/movement of substances in a global context #GlobalMiddleAges

Why? (3/12)
