What can we learn from the cooking methods of our ancestors?

How did our ancestors cook the foods they ate (or not). Do you think this is important? What can we learn from it?

I remember reading anthropology that e.g. the Hadza just throw a monkey on the fire until the outer layers are black and the inner meats are still raw. But I also remember reading other hunter-gatherers using more sophisticated cooking methods, like slow cooking in leather 'bags'.

Thanks!

I was wondering the same thing. Ancestors supposedly ate everything from the animal, but how did they extract nutrients from the bones and cartilage? I don't know if bone broths were known back then.

great question. i think its something between raw and dead. kill the germs and still have the living energy of the animal. I think this shows a lot. so more detailed aswers from athropology here are so more we learn and cope next time.
