This PhD project will investigate the isotope signals from both modern and past examples of domestication and taming. Key questions will likely be: Can we detect past domestications or taming using a combination of isotopic approaches? What evidence is there from the past for domestication or taming of species? However, within the context of this project title we are open for students coming forward with more detailed project ideas around this area, or their own ideas for a PhD project involving feeding animals and/or domestication. We have thus deliberately not detailed the species, the timescales, approach etc., as we would like applicants to shape the project. One area we would like to include though is a compound specific isotope approach to answering these questions.
