In this installment of Field Notes, we talk to Dr. Michael Pante. Dr Pante is an Associate Professor in the Anthropology and Geography department at Colorado State University. We chat about his research on the impact of meat and marrow consumption on human evolution, his trip to Olduvai Gorge in Tanzania, his methodological contributions to paleoanthropology and his recent work on the origins and evolution of cannibalism among our ancestors in Africa and Europe.
