Research data supporting "Diet and lifestyle in the first villages of the Middle Preceramic: insights from stable isotope and osteological analyses of human remains from Paloma, Chilca I, La Yerba III and Morro I"
|dc.description||Dataset associated with publication of the same title published in Latin American Antiquity in 2021. The dataset includes a range of data related to an investigation of diet, stature and mobility in the middle preceramic sites of Paloma, Chilca I, La Yerba II and Morro I on the south coast of Peru and northern Chile. Tables include: 1) Individual stable isotope (nitrogen, carbon) from human bone samples from Paloma, La Yerba III and Chilca I generated in this study; 2) Individual and summary data on estimated stature from long bone lengths and biomechanical indicator (femoral midshaft Imax/Imin) data from individual adult skeletons from Paloma, Morro I, and later agriculturalists from the Azapa Valley, northern Chile; 3) Details of two new direct radiocarbon dates on human skeletal remains from Paloma; 4) New and published radiocarbon dates from Paloma calibrated using ShCal13 (Hogg et al. 2013), and then modelled using OxCal’s Bayesian analysis following Bronk Ramsey (2009, 2017), in a sequence of phases, according to reported stratigraphic sequence.; 5) New and existing radiocarbon dates from Paloma and existing dates from La Yerba III, Chilca I and Morro I collated and calibrated using ShCal13 (Hogg et al. 2013), and then modelled as a single phase using OxCal’s Bayesian analysis following Bronk Ramsey (2009, 2017)); 6) A chronological summary of individuals from Morro I included in the publication, based on previously published information, that includes cultural phasing, isotopic analyses, and associated and direct radiocarbon dates for each individual.|
