Hunter Gatherers are documented as needing 4hrs a day "working" to meet their calorific requirements.EP #2 was better than #1, but I’ve always been surprised how much apparently ‘free’ time people have on these things. I’m sure it’s just an editing thing but it strikes me that folk from the supposed era would be flat out gathering / hunting for food, firewood, fruit and so on. My other half was impressed how clean their buckskin clothes remained as well. It just seems a bit at odds with a group of people who are living and working hard in a forest
There was no pottery in Europe in the Mesolithic as far as I'm aware; certainly of the quality that they are using (happy to be corrected).
Buckskin is most effective when kept clean just like regular clothing and benefits from being kept clean or just not worn to avoid getting grubby.
(I also suspect Theresa would of been nagging to keep the buckskin clean)
pottery may not of been found in Europe in that time period but where did it state it was specifically intended to mimic European Mesolithic?
At least 3 participants are American individuals Nicole,Matt and Theresa and i believe Lynx lives there as well.
Perhaps its more stoneage to the general public on a saturday night than those who will apply a fine toothcomb?
