Tom Schuler’s blog has a guest post by archeologist John Williams, Ph.D. entitled “How to eat like a cavemen (the real kind).” Dr. Williams reviews some evidence that our Paleolithic ancestors ate:
- human flesh
- blood (e.g., Plains Indians drinking warm buffalo blood)
- yogurt (e.g., from the stomachs of suckling buffalo calves)
- bone and organ grease
- alcohol (from fermented fruit)
Read the rest. It’s a funny and quick read.
