Paired radiocarbon dating on human samples and camelid fibers and textiles from northern Chile: the case of Pica 8

Abstract:

Pica 8 is a Late Intermediate Period (AD 900-1450) cemetery located in the Atacama Desert. Burials at the site present unexpectedly high variability in δ13C (-8‰ to -16‰) and δ15N (10‰ to 24‰) values in their skeletal tissues implying highly diverse diets. There are two possible explanations for this variability: the first is diachronic change in diet and the second synchronic socio-cultural distinctions. To distinguish between them a radiocarbon dating program (n = 23) was initiated. The pre...
