Abstract [en]

Vivallen is a Late Iron Age / Early Middle Age south Sámi site in Härjedalen, Sweden. We investigated the relative importance of various foodstuffs at this site, performing δ13C and δ15N analysis of human and faunal bones. As the site was located along a pilgrimage route, we performed δ34S analysis to study mobility. The results showed that freshwater fish was an important part of the diet, whereas reindeer and big game do not seem to have been a major protein source. They further demonstrated low mobility among the individuals, with one exception, a female who evidently grew up somewhere else.
