ZANBA Project

Emily drilling samplesWelcome to ZANBA: Zooarchaeology of the Nuragic Bronze Age! ZANBA is a new archaeological research project funded by a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship and based in the BioArchaeology research group CUBA in the School of History, Archaeology and Religion at Cardiff University. In ZANBA, I’m collaborating with fellow zooarchaeologist and isotope expert Richard Madwick to establish a strontium isotope baseline map of central Sardinia, then use strontium, nitrogen, and carbon isotope analysis of animal remains to understand mobility and animal husbandry in the Nuragic Culture of Bronze Age Sardinia.

I’ll be posting periodic updates throughout the project to keep you informed of our progress. You can also follow @ZANBA_Project on Twitter and zanba_project on Instagram to catch all the details.Sampled cow molar
