    Even though these are neolithic (not Paleo) folk, this part stood out to me:

    After 1150, they evidently switched primarily to a hunter-gatherer diet and were the better for it - their muscle mass increased and their nutrient stress decreased, as reflected in the Harris lines in teeth and skeletal robusticity based on muscle attachments, Riley said.

    "It looks like people who were eating a lot of maize were actually probably the least healthy," he said. "We see that a fair amount in hunter-gatherer versus agricultural populations. Hunter-gathers tend to have seasonal nutrition stress but they don't have long-term nutritional deficiencies the same way agriculturalists tend to."

    Paleolithic and Neolithic are periods characterized by certain behaviors and technologies not necessarily by the date on a calendar. While the world in general had entered the Neolithic era and the Fremont did for a time as well, the section you quoted indicates that the Fremont had abandoned the Neolithic to return to a Paleolithic lifestyle. Also note I did not claim the Paleolithic diet was proved healthy by the article just that the Fremont Indians lived a lifestyle that supported some of Mark's claims in the Primal Blueprint (BP).
