Thanks go to Heike Siegmund at SIL, Department of Geological Sciences, Stockholm University, for running the mass-spectrometer, Janne Storå at the Osteoarchaeological Research Laboratory, Stockholm University, for identifying many of the bones, and to the Swedish Museum of National Antiquities and the Swedish National Heritage Board for providing skeletal material. Financial support came from the EU Sixth Framework programme 'Cultaptation' (NEST-PATH-043434) and the Birgit och Gad Rausing Foundation, who gave a grant for the sulphur isotope analysis of the Neolithic material. We also thank the editors and the anonymous reviewer for helpful comments.
