Also helpful in determining the types of foods consumed by the earliest hominids is the study of tooth size and dental wear patterns. 4 2 Studies on dental wear and tooth size of early pre-hominid and australopithecine inhabitants of eastern and southern Africa in comparison with modern primates, for example, provide general knowledge of the diet of early m a n , and may indicate differences a m o n g the species.

Sometimes particlcs of the material adhere to the tool and can be seen under magnification. So, for instance, flint tools at Koobi Fora, in Kenya, showed polish consistent with cutting meat, plants, and wood. Not every instance, however, would have been related to food, since not all plants would have been eaten. Additionally, study of tool marks on bone has, for limited types of stone, provided additional help in determining the actual use of some stone tools. Bones at Olduvai Gorge and at Koobi Fora, for example, show clear evidence of having been cut or scraped while fresh.
