The Paleo Papers

[Bumping for new content #s 4 and 8]

Just links to the full text peer review articles on the nature and composition of the diet consumed by paleolithic humans.  In reverse chronological order of publication.  This is by no means a comprehensive list, and to be considered a "work in progress" in hopes of someday compiling a comprehensive list of citations characterizing the paleolithic diet, for which I can provide links to full-text articles.   As such, if you have anything to contribute, please do so in comments, I only ask that only articles for which full texts are freely available be included ... abstracts will likely provide nothing in addition to the already accrued list.   Also, I would greatly appreciate you letting me know if any of the links go dead.  For some articles, I have put a link to request a share through Google Drive, please only use this option if the primary link no longer works, thank you.

Are you interested in primary studies (single-site studies, bioarchaeologists sorting through the actual bones and pollen, etc.) or just the surveys? Also, which Paleolithic hominin species would you like to include and exclude? Are you going to extend to hominids also? What is your endpoint for "Paleolithic"? A chronological deadline, or the cultural criteria usually used by archaeologists? Mind you, I have never really seen Paleo(TM) specify that either. ;)

enlightening. I appreciate you spending some time and energy to put this short
article together. I once again find myself personally spending
a significant amount of time both reading and leaving comments.
But so what, it was still worthwhile!
