The Iceman Was Not Paleo!

*The Original* Iceman

According to this enlightening NOVA Online article, the famous “Iceman” discovered in the Italian Alps back in 1991 was apparently a bread-eater.  This should really come as no surprise, since he is “only” 5,300 years old and thus post-agricultural.

His rudimentary bread was apparently made from einkorn, which doesn’t sound all that appealing but which nonetheless would have disqualified him from your local Paleo Challenge.

Looking at his ancient remains, we are left to wonder:  “What must his Fran time have been like?”
