For Intro-to-Anthropology 2020, there were two readings that could be grouped under the idea of “paleo”:
- “Food: 20,000 to 5,000 Years Ago” in Through the Lens of Anthropology (note: link is to the 3rd edition, but page numbers and quotes for this class are to the 2nd edition).
- Jared Diamond, “The Worst Mistake in the History of the Human Race.” Discover (1987).
This material was for Introduction to Anthropology 2020. It complemented the previous class and the discussion of tool use. It began considering a transition we discussed more in the next class on domestication.
