I have yet to find a place for the snippets below.

  1. Everyday life and its variability influenced human evolution at least as much as rare activities like big-game hunting
  2. Forget ‘Man the Hunter’ – physiological and archaeological evidence rewrites assumptions about a gendered division of labor in prehistoric times Men and women originally did the same work. 
    • Women in the past likely did everything men did
    • The evidence for women staying at home only starts in the last 12k years of agriculture. Women are adapted for better endurance than men, and the evidence shows that they hunted as much or more.
