Article
Full-text available
The history of the British Isles and Ireland is characterized by multiple periods of major cultural change, including the influential transformation after the end of Roman rule, which precipitated shifts in language, settlement patterns and material culture¹. The extent to which migration from continental Europe mediated these transitions is a matt...
Article
Full-text available
This study presents the results of the petrographic and geochemical analyses of the entire pottery assemblage discovered at the sixth-century (AD) cemetery of Szólád, Western Hungary, associated with the Langobard era in the territory of the former Roman province of Pannonia. Szólád is one of the most prominent archaeological sites of this period,...
Article
Full-text available
From the first century AD, Europe has been interested by population movements, commonly known as Barbarian migrations. Among these processes, the one involving the Longobard culture interested a vast region, but its dynamics and demographic impact remains largely unknown. Here we report 87 new complete mitochondrial sequences coming from nine early...
Article
Full-text available
Despite centuries of research, much about the barbarian migrations that took place between the fourth and sixth centuries in Europe remains hotly debated. To better understand this key era that marks the dawn of modern European societies, we obtained ancient genomic DNA from 63 samples from two cemeteries (from Hungary and Northern Italy) that have...

Article
Full-text available
The assumed migration of the Langobards across an extensive geographic area as reconstructed from the literary sources, and their settlement in Late Antique Italy, has always fascinated scholars because it encapsulates and illustrates the essence of the Late Antique transformation – namely the encounter and interaction between the Late Antique Roma...
Article
Full-text available
In 2005 to 2007 45 skeletons of adults and subadults were excavated at the Lombard period cemetery at Szólád (6th century A.D.), Hungary. Embedded into the well-recorded historical context, the article presents the results obtained by an integrative investigation including anthropological, molecular genetic and isotopic (δ15N, δ13C, 87Sr/86Sr) anal...
Chapter
A Balaton crucible? On the relationship between “Lombard” immigrant groups and the Romanised population of the region of Lake Balaton at Szólád and Keszthely-Fenékpuszta in (pre)Longobard times, between archaeology and isotopes Keszthely-Fenékpuszta and Szólád are both located on Lake Balaton at a distance of 46 km from each other. Selected aspect...
Chapter
Full-text available
Large-scale prospections undertaken in the Ukraine and Moldova in the �970s and �980s are widely unknown to the western scientific community. In particular, V. P. Dudkin’s surveys on Tripolye-Cucuteni settlements made innovative and groundbreaking advances in European prehistoric research. His masterpieces include the �97�–�974 investiga- tions at...
Article
This study presents bone collagen carbon and nitrogen isotope data from the Migration Period cemeteries (fifth/sixth century AD) of Obermöllern and Rathewitz in Central Germany. The human average δ 13C ratios of −19.8 ± 0.3 ‰ and δ 15N ratios of 9.6 ± 0.9 ‰ (n = 43) reflect a mixed diet in a temperate C3-based ecosystem without significant differen...
Article
(87)Sr/(86)Sr reference maps (isoscapes) are a key tool for investigating past human and animal migrations. However, there is little understanding of which biosphere samples are best proxies for local bioavailable Sr when dealing with movements of past populations. In this study, biological and geological samples (ground vegetation, tree leaves, ro...
Chapter

Residential changes of people during the Migration Period are crucial for archaeological research. Within an extensive study of the migration of the Langobards, strontium isotope analysis was carried out on tooth enamel taken from 48 burials from the Thuringian cemeteries of Rathewitz and Obermöllern (Burgenlandkreis, Sachsen-Anhalt, Germany), whic...
Article
Full-text available
In autumn 2011, the geomagnetic survey was conducted at Margum/Morava. The results significantly contribute to our knowledge of the history of the site, together with the ones of the recent LiDAR scanning of its wider area. The data show that the part of Margum surveyed was densely settled with stone structures, possible timber-frame buildings and,...

This article discusses the results of geophysical surveys conducted at Mediana, near the town Nis (Serbia) in April 2010. The research was realized in cooperation with the Romano-Germanic Commission of the German Archaeological Institute, the Archaeological Institute and the University of Belgrade. Mediana geomagnetic prospecting sites, as a form o...
Book
Im Jahr 1930 wurde in Soest bei Bauarbeiten ein frühmittelalterliches Gräberfeld entdeckt. Die Ausgräber legten damals mehr als 200 Kammer-, Bretter- und Baumsarggräber vom 6. Jahrhundert bis zur Zeit um 800 n. Chr. mit z.T. wertvollen Beigaben frei. Einzelne Fundstücke gingen kurz darauf als Grundlage für die frühmittelalterlichen Chronologiegerüs...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The isotope ratios of biologically available strontium in ecosystems primarily depend on their geological substratum. Strontium reference maps are therefore needed to provide the basis to trace the movement of people and animals in modern times and in the past. Strontium isoscapes are generated through the analysis of modern geological and biologic...
