Stable strontium isotope ratios in archaeological finds have frequently been used to determine their place of origin, in order to reconstruct migration and trade. Peat bogs offer favourable burial conditions for the preservation of organic remains such as woollen textiles and leather by a natural tanning process. However, these finds are impregnated by peat substances including contaminant strontium which is likely to mask the original (87)Sr/(86)Sr isotopic ratio of the specimens. In this paper, we present a pilot study analysing stable strontium isotopic ratios from Iron Age textile and leather finds from the Thorsberg peat bog, focusing on a sample processing method which permits the quantitative removal of contaminating strontium from the specimens.
