The Real Palaeodiet: What archaeology reveals about the evolution of our diet and health

The notion of a 'healthy' diet that harks back to an idealised point in our prehistory has gained both high-profile support and significant criticism over the last decade. Hear how archaeological research is providing exciting insights into the evolution of human diet & health.

Prof. Keith Dobney, University of Liverpool, is a bio-archeologist. His research group explores the origins and spread of farming across the planet, and more recently has been reconstructing the evolution of human and Neanderthal diet and health from studies of their dental tartar.
