Paleonutrition, by Mark Sutton et al.

Just to be clear, this is a textbook introduction to paleonutrition research and methodology (the first 170 pages) with 5 nutrition-related case studies (the last 70 pages). The case studies themselves are not strictly paleonutrition, as they all involve more recent human populations, but they are still interesting. If you're going into archeology and considering the paleonutrition field, you'll probably enjoy this book. If you are just interested in the "paleo-diet" or what our ancestors ate, you want a different book. It would be nice if the author had used footnotes instead of in-line citations, because some parts of the book are very, very heavy with the citations. Don't let this put you off, though. As a total non-academic, not an archaeology student I still enjoyed the book and found it reasonably accessible, if a little drier than my usual fare.
