  1. Radiocarbon dates and stable isotope measurements (δ13C, C/N, δ15N) of archaeological samples from Kayhude/Alster and Schlamersdorf/Trave, Northern Germany. FC: food crust; BC: bone collagen; TC: tooth collagen; BF: bone fragment. DI: analyses on a CO2 aliquot from the radiocarbon preparation, performed using a Dual Inlet IsoPrime stable isotope mass spectrometer. EA: analyses on pre-treated samples, performed by combustion in a EuroVector elemental analyser coupled to the mass spectrometer.
