This book explores the relationship between prehistoric people and their food - what they ate, why they ate it, and .
Contemporary human food traditions encompass a seemingly infinite variety, but all are essentially strategies for meeting basic nutritional needs developed over millions of years.
In this book, Kristen J. Gremillion demonstrates how these evolutionary processes have shaped the diversification of human diet over several million years of prehistory. She draws on evidence extracted from the material remains that provide the only direct evidence of how people procured, prepared, presented and consumed food in prehistoric times. This is fine popular science, with none of the excesses that accompany other similar efforts to explore human diet.
