I imagine that early humans ate whatever they could catch, no matter where they were...  The first human who ever ate a frog was probably the first human who ever got really hungry and was by a marsh...

it's just a question of familiarity. people love to eat lobster now, but imagine how brave the first person had to be to say "yeah, i think i'll just chow down on this hideous sea insect".

i guess the gist of the article is that neolithic people ate a varied diet?
