Strontium and lead isotope ratios in human hair: investigating a potential tool for determining recent human geographical movements
Laura Font (1), Gerard van der Peijl (2), Isis van Wetten (1), Pieter Vroon (1), Bas van der Wagt (1) and Gareth Davies (1)
In this study, Sr isotope ratios analysed in modern human scalp hair from a female vegetarian and non-smoker register marked isotopic change on a monthly timescale when an individual moves to locations with contrasting Sr isotope compositions. Pb isotope ratios do not show significant changes after moving locations, possibly due to comparable Pb isotope ratios in the two environments. In contrast, Pb isotopes ratios analysed in facial hair from a male omnivore and smoker record isotopic changes within a two week period when moving between locations with significant differences in environmental Pb isotope compositions.
