Abstract


A total of seventeen samples were taken from human bones in the hope that they would be Mesolithic in date, however, they proved to be Neolithic. Seven animal bones were also sampled. Although the extent of consumption of marine versus other food is difficult to assess, the stable isotope data suggest that some marine foods were consumed by the humans buried there well into the fourth millennium.
