This project aims at investigating the relationship between human diet and spatial mobility in Italy and central Europe during the Iron Age and Roman period when these two regions were characterized by distinct cultural, socio-economic, and political traditions. To achieve this, I will conduct bibliographic research and I will rely on multiple isotopic proxies providing information on diet and mobility by measuring these on human remains from sites in northern Italy and central Europe.
