Jack Fenner’s research interests focus on applying technical and quantitative methods to archaeological materials and sites to better identify and understand past cultural responses to and drivers of change. Much of his current work involves using stable isotope analysis of organics from archaeological sites to investigate how people used the surrounding faunal landscapeand to identify environmental constraints. One of his recent research projects is one Archaeological Stable Isotopes of Eastern Mongolia and he has been collaborating with Professor Tumen at the Mongolian National University. They use analysis of carbon and nitrogen stable isotope ratios to assess dietary differences among elite and non-elite Mongols during the Mongol Empire.
