LUMIERE & IsoArcH join hands

To increase the visibility and accessibility of the data produced within the LUMIERE project, the researchers will work together with IsoArcH (, an open access isotope web-database for bioarchaeology.

With 40,000+ isotope related data obtained on 13,000+ specimens (i.e., humans, animals, plants and organic residues) coming from 500+ archaeological sites, IsoArcH is now one of the world's largest repositories for isotopic data and metadata deriving from archaeological contexts.

This collaboration will allow the implementation of new functionalities and tools for the database. It will also allow us to continue the development of the database to better meet the expectations of researchers and users. The compilation of data will be accelerated, and much more.

Through joint efforts, the LUMIERE project and the IsoArcH initiative aim to fully enter the Big Data era.
