The Early Human Diet

Science Daily: On the early human's menu: Mammoth and plenty of raw vegetables - Early modern humans consumed more plants than Neanderthals but ate very little fish
summary - Scientists have studied the diet of anatomically modern humans, and are able to refute the theory that the diet of early representatives of Homo sapiens was more flexible than that of Neanderthals. Just like the Neanderthals, our ancestors had mainly mammoth and plants on their plates. The researchers were unable to document fish as part of their diet. Therefore, the international team assumes that the displacement of the Neanderthals was the result of direct competition.
