Radiocarbon and diet: aquatic food resources and reservoir effects
International scientific meeting:
24-26 September 2014 (Kiel - Germany)

The main goal of the first international meeting on “Radiocarbon and Diet” is to provide a holistic approach to radiocarbon reservoir effects (RREs) by bringing together experts from a variety of fields. Welcomed fields of expertise include: archaeology, forensics, history, radiocarbon dating, hydrology, ichthyology, paleodiet reconstruction, isotopic studies. The meeting will cover a wide range of topics, including: temporal and spatial variability in RREs, underlying environmental factors, transmission of
14C signals within aquatic food webs, human and animal dietary RREs in archaeological and modern contexts, and methodologies for the detection and of dietary RREs. Radiocarbon reservoir effects in archaeology not linked with aquatic food resources will also be considered.
