The Mimbres buried their dead close to their natal hearth, usually beneath the very floor they lived on.

One day we discussed the importance of throwing rocks. There is quite a bit of archaeological evidence for early rock throwing. Wrangham told me that there was actually physiological evidence of of selection among protohumans for the anatomical ability to throw hard and accurately. This was a small but critical piece of information.
