Submission + - Neanderthal Dental Records Suggest Prehistoric Man Ate Animal Stomachs-> 1 1

Philip Ross writes: Neanderthals, modern man’s close primitive relative, may have favored the flavor of a food-gorged animal gut now and then, according to scientists studying Neanderthals’ dental records. Anthropologists from London’s Natural History Museum describe the plant material found in the plaque of 50,000-year-old Neanderthal teeth as having come from the stomach contents of their prey. Researchers revisited the dental records of Neanderthals from El Sidrón Cave in Spain, where Neanderthal remains were first uncovered in 1994. The records were assembled last year as part of a study into Neanderthal diets.
