This paper presents the results of new stable isotopes (carbon and nitrogen) analysis of human, faunal and fish remains from thirteen cemeteries from the Middle and Lower Dnieper Basin, Ukraine. The results are integrated with earlier analyses, under... Read More

Response of the microbial community to water table variation and nutrient addition and its implications for in situ preservation of organic archaeological remains in wetland soils (2009)
Journal Article
Douterelo, I., Goulder, R., & Lillie, M. (2009). Response of the microbial community to water table variation and nutrient addition and its implications for in situ preservation of organic archaeological remains in wetland soils. International Biodeterioration and Biodegradation, 63(6), (795-805). doi:10.1016/j.ibiod.2009.06.010. ISSN 0964-8305

Wetland environments can preserve organic archaeological remains because of their anaerobic nature. The ongoing discovery of archaeological sites in wetlands is associated with a lack of funds for excavation and preservation. This situation has led t... Read More

Journal Article
Lillie, M., Budd, C., Potekhina, I., & Hedges, R. (2009). The radiocarbon reservoir effect: new evidence from the cemeteries of the middle and lower Dnieper basin, Ukraine. Journal of archaeological science, 36(2), (256-264). doi:10.1016/j.jas.2008.09.005. ISSN 0305-4403

This paper presents preliminary results of new radiocarbon dating of human, faunal and fish skeletal remains from a number of the cemeteries from the Middle and Lower Dnieper Basin, Ukraine. The results appear to demonstrate the presence of a radioca... Read More
