Archeologists from the USA were found traces of human hunting, left about two million years BC. e. The information presented by researchers from Baylor University in a paper published in the journal PLOS ONE.

Researchers found only in South Kanjera (Kenya), three layers of the remains of slaughtered wild animals, which are fairly well preserved. The archaeologists also found evidence of dumping of the fact that the representatives of the hominid family, tribal people hominins, even ate the remains of animals killed by other animals.

The presence in the diet of ancient people were falling along with the meat, which was produced on the hunt, they say, according to scientists, they found skeletons of antelope. Skeletons of hoofed animals of small size have been found in the burial intact, while on the antelope, comparable in size to the wildebeest, preserved only the skull.

The heads of large animals, as the authors work hominin found after hunting lions or hyenas. The ancestors of humans with stone tools autopsied skull and brain to get antelope, which we could not do the usual predators.

According to the researchers, hunting in conjunction with the processing of bone with special tools, has helped to increase your food intake to ancient people.
