"The role of scavenging in human dietary evolution"
Hypotheses about the increased incorporation of animal tissues (meat and marrow) into early hominin diets often focus on two potential modes of large animal carcass procurement by hominins: hunting or scavenging. This talk will outline zooarchaeological and ecological evidence for scavenging as a likely mode of hominin procurement of medium and large animal carcasses in the Early Stone Age.
