"As our hominin ancestors spread out around the world, their unique flexibility and ability to survive on different food sources allowed them to thrive in otherwise hostile environments. There is extensive archaeological evidence of their lives from diverse parts of the world. As they travelled further from the equator, and encountered more extreme environments, the importance of meat in the diet became greater due to the seasonal and less extensive nature of wild plant foods."
"Kaplan et al (2000) identify four key characteristics that distinguish humans from other species: long life-span; long juvenile dependency period; social support from older group members and male support through food-provisioning. They theorise that these characteristics and our advanced intelligence are “co-evolved responses to a dietary shift toward high-quality, nutrient-dense, and difficult-to-acquire food resources” (Kaplan et al. 2000). Their research goes on to demonstrate the extraordinary level of skill and learning that is required for traditional human hunting strategies. By analysing modern hunter-gatherers, they found that men’s hunting skills did not peak until they reached their 30s, well into adulthood. Due to the considerable nutritional pay-off hunting provides, in most of the studies it was found that adult male hunters were the greatest providers of food energy in their communities. Females concentrated on gathering, plant foods especially, an activity that is easier to achieve while child-rearing."
"Various studies such as Richards et al (2000) have analysed hominin bones in Europe for the stable isotope (δ13C and δ15N) ratios which can indicate the proportion of animal to plant food in their diet (Richards et al. 2000). These studies suggest that European Neanderthal and later hunter-gather diets were almost completely carnivorous. Further research such as done by Richards (2003) find a sudden shift in British diet at the beginning of the Neolithic period, around 5000 years ago. Again analysis of the stable isotopes in bone remains show an almost complete abandonment of seafood in the diet for land-based foods. This shift would have occurred around the time that agricultural and animal husbandry techniques arrived in the area."
