[2] Prof Mike Parker-Pearson of Sheffield University is involved in a 5 year research project, analysing isotope levels in human skeletal remains from Beaker period sites in Britain. Some grey literature and project summary can be viewed [3] here. They are researching mobility in Bronze Age populations and the study is running in tandem with a similar Swedish project.
