The history of the Fertile Crescent is well documented through archaeology and epigraphy. However, contrary to adjacent regions in the Mediterranean and Middle East, the reconstruction of diet and food ways through isotope analysis is limited for Mesopotamia and, consequently, matters of subsistence change are not well understood. To address this, collagen carbon and nitrogen isotopic ratios of human (N=84) and animal (N=8) samples from Tell Barri, Syria, predominantly ranging from the Early Bronze Age to Roman/Parthian times, were analysed to ascertain diachronic dietary patterns as well as gender- and age-related differences.
