Team Teeth showcases how human teeth serve as a window into ancient human migration.


Hannah uses human teeth as a window into ancient human
migration! As a child grows, teeth lock in the chemical signature of the food
and water they have been drinking. The isotopes of two chemical elements,
oxygen and strontium, differ between environments meaning a region (and the
food and water from there) has a distinct chemical signature. Analysing these
isotopes in human teeth can be used indicate where someone might have spent
their childhood, and by looking at multiple individuals from an archaeological
site, a picture of how people migrated in the past can be drawn.



Nicole depicts teeth as keys into a diverse universe of
untold stories. Looking at a tooth, like looking through a keyhole, gives us an
insight into what's happening beneath the surface.
