Ray Mears, the man anyone lost in the wild would love to have with them, returns in an ambitious new series about the impact of food on our culture, past and present. Today, our bodies are the same as those of our hunter-gatherer ancestors, but our diets are very different. Microwave meals and fast-food snacks are light years away from a diet of wilted nettles and berries. In an age where obesity is a growing problem, Ray asks if there is something to be learnt by looking at the diets of our Stone Age ancestors. As far as Ray is concerned the Australian Aboriginals are the best contemporary example of how to live using Stone Age technology. For centuries they thrived without metal or even pots for cooking. In this series Ray combines contemporary Australian Aboriginal methods with our own archaeological and botanic records and his unique knowledge of indigenous cultures to see how our ancestors may have found food, processed it and the impact this could have had on their culture and way of life. This unique mixture allows us to see our past in a new light as we learn that we’re much closer to our ancestors than we may care to imagine.
