    Story in Photos: Caveman Roasted Bird Feast

    By Jennifer Viegas | Wed Nov 25, 2009 04:37 PM ET

This week at Discovery News you can read about some of the earliest evidence for human consumption of birds outside of Africa. Around 150,000 years ago, Homo heidelbergensis cavemen ate ducks that they either roasted or consumed whole and raw. The feast happened at Bolomor Cave in Valencia, Spain, according to a recent study.

Ruth Blasco, a researcher at the Institute of Human Paleoecology and Social Evolution in Tarragona, Spain, and colleague Josep Fernandez Peris found and analyzed 202 duck bones from the cave. The birds appear to have been fire roasted and hominid-nibbled to the bone. Here's the story in photos:
