Clip from PBS NOVA special "Dawn of Humanity" about newly discovered species, Homo Naledi, and the diet of one of the earliest human ancestors. It explains where the idea that early humans were primarily meat eaters originated from and why this hypothesis is no longer supported by the evidence. Scientists look at the material between the fossilized teeth and find starch/ plant material. These clips are long, however they also explain the origins of the hunter-gatherer myth or the view that humans evolved to be big time meat eaters.
