Population movements in the Metal Ages (from the Chalcolithic to the Late Iron Age) have become a major topic in the last years. Whereas human mobility – especially of elites and women – has long been assumed by archaeologists, it was the dawn of new bioarchaeological approaches that forced us to rethink scales of human mobility, their correlation with gender and their societal impact in the last decade. Genetic analyses have provided ample data for the movement of a large and predominantly male group of individuals from the Eurasian steppes to the west, while strontium isotope analyses have unfolded an extent and complexity of female mobility that has exceeded our expectations by far.
