Data For The Distribution Of Flat-Backed Canteens, Kristina L. Whitney Jan 2017

Data For The Distribution Of Flat-Backed Canteens, Kristina L. Whitney

I use these data to explore two alternative hypotheses: 1. Anatomically modern humans gained a competitive advantage over Neanderthals by exploiting a broader-spectrum diet including small prey items such as the rabbit and 2. Neanderthals already on occasion practiced a broad-spectrum diet ...
