So I'm a curious bloke, and while I've read books which give conclusions based on research, I've never read any books which accurately describe what hunter-gatherer lifestyle was like, and what research had been discovered.

I know that there was a neolithic body found frozen in Switzerland, for example, where they were able to analyze the contents of the intestines to figure out diet, but what other data types are we working with? Outside of bones from campsites, and maybe a few other frozen bodies, how do we analyze eating habits of our ancestors?

As for lifestyle, what data do we have besides modern research on hunter gatherer societies? Some stone tools? Some ceremonial burials? Are there any pieces that correlate to lives of modern hunter gatherers, are there any which seem to be in conflict?

Basically, I'm asking y'all for a recommended reading list of books which have good info. Cheers!
