The Australian paleo diet: 40,000 years in the making

Jillian's area of research is the role Australian native animal's play in Australian archaeology. Fauna can come in a variety of forms- teeth and bones but it can also be represented by shell, hair and fur. It can tell us about what kind of animals people used to like to eat in the past and what body parts they selected and how they went about cooking their food.

Jillian believes that Australian fauna has real potential in our modern lives and in particular in looking at our modern diets, in particular the Paleo diet- where people are encouraged to eat natural game, fish, fruit and vegetables that are unprocessed and in a natural state.
