Emma Lightfoot

Isotope specialist

My research uses chemical analyses of human and animal remains to investigate palaeodiet, migration and palaeoclimate. I completed my Ph.D. in 2009 in the Department of Archaeology, Cambridge University, and am currently the Adrian Research Fellow at Darwin College, Cambridge University working on the ‘Food Globalisation in Prehistory’ project. For the MACH project, I am using carbon, nitrogen and oxygen isotope analyses to investigate the diet and geographic origins of individuals excavated on Mauritius.
