Abstract [en]

Understanding socioeconomic inequality is fundamental in studies of societal development in European prehistory. This paper presents dietary (δ13C and δ15N) isotope values for human and animal bone collagen from Early Neolithic Osłonki 1, north-central Poland (c. 4600–4100 cal BC). Individuals interred with copper grave offerings show slightly, but significantly, lower δ13C values than those lacking such offerings. Their contemporaneity is confirmed by a new series of 14C determinations. Our results suggest a link between high-status goods and intra-community differences in diet and/or preferential access to the agro/pastoral landscape.
