Rethinking Anthropological Perspectives on Migration

Kelly J. Knudson

University Press of Florida

Using biogeochemistry, archaeologists and bioarchaeologists can identify residential mobility and migration in migratory individuals themselves, rather than using proxies such as artifact distributions. Here, an introduction to biogeochemical approaches to migration is provided, followed by detailed discussions of the challenges of identifying migration in the archaeological record. Case studies from the Tiwanaku polity (ca. ad 500–1000) are used to illustrate residential relocation and political integration at the Tiwanaku-affiliated sites of Chen Chen, Peru, and San Pedro de Atacama, Chile.

Keywords:   radiogenic strontium isotope analysis, Peru, Chile, Bolivia, Tiwanaku, residential mobility
