What prehistoric food was available?

Paleolithic man at the outset must have lived on what nature supplied in the way of wild berries, nuts, roots, herbs, honey, the eggs of wild fowl, shellfish, and grubs, and on the small animals which he could kill by throwing stones and sticks.

As his implements improved and Food supply his skill increased, he became big game. He killed and ate the woolly mammoth, European bison, reindeer, and especially the steppe horse, which at one time roamed in great herds over western Europe. The pelts of the slain animals were made into covers and clothing, as we know from the discovery of flint skin scrapers and bone needles.
