Tales of Bronze Age People is a three-year (2018-2021) interdisciplinary research project supported by a Carlsberg Foundation Semper Ardens grant (CF18-0005) led by Karin Margarita Frei, Research Professor in Archaeometry at the National Museum of Denmark. The project investigates the dynamic ways in which people navigated social lives in the Early Nordic Bronze Age. The research explores mobility and cultural transmission at multiple scales and across landscapes. This project expands the ongoing Tales of Bronze Age Women project (CF15-0878) and combines state-of-the-art biogeochemical, biomolecular, and anthropological and archaeological investigations. Current research foci range from isotope analyses (e.g. 87Sr/86Sr) of human remains from both inhumation and cremation graves, to osteological analyses, as well as to systematic collection and collation of data for statistical and cladistics analyses, all with a focus on basing interpretations on multiple frames of reference from an anthropological archaeology perspective aimed at illuminating aspects of individual lives in the past. This poster highlights the results and current research of the Tales of Bronze Age Women/ People projects and presents ongoing contributions to transdisciplinary approaches to interpreting archaeological materials through integrated natural and social sciences methodologies and methods.
