What archeology tells us about diet

In this short excerpt from the talk "The Starch Solution," Dr. John McDougall discusses archeological findings about the diet of gladiators. Tests to remains led archaeologists to conclude that the gladiators ate a completely plant-based diet.

In fact, they used "vegan" to describe those gladiators.

Wait, aren't vegans those guys you see carrying signs outside KFC protesting animal cruelty?

Yeah.

And gladiators ate a vegan diet, too.
