Raw paleo or cooked paleo?
Actually, evidence for cannibalism in the palaeolithic era is widespread. Some cannibalism can be attributed to eating the dead of the relevant tribe, but other examples are likely due to intertribal warfare which was frequent but intermittent. We see this also in the case of more modern hunter-gatherers who believed customs such as that eating the heart of an enemy would give one the enemy's courage etc.Wasn't it more commonly the liver?
Genetic distances and molecular datings based on O. canadensis CR and mtDNA protein-coding sequences provide strong evidence for domestications from two mouflon subspecies. ...
Likely candidates for truly wild ancestors of [haplogroup] cluster B are mouflon populations found in Turkey and western Iran. These sheep are currently referred to as O. orientalis anatolica and O. orientalis gmelini, although their subspecies status is debatable. ...
the origin of haplogroup [cluster] A remains unknown. Considering the probable subspecies relationship of the founders of both clusters of domestic sheep matrilines, mouflon (O. orientalis) populations of the eastern mouflon range are probable candidates.
