Brad Lepper, of the Ohio History Connection Archaeology Blog, has written a brief post about a recent study published in Legacy which suggests that Paleoindians' diet is not as well understood as previously thought.
"The Paleoindian period has a special fascination because of its extreme antiquity. But because of that antiquity it has been difficult to get a clear picture of the ways of life of these Ice Age peoples. New technologies, such as blood residue analysis, are adding details, but clearly we still have a lot to learn."
