Reply to Nehlich and Borić’s “Response to Bonsall et al. ‘Food for Thought: Re-Assessing Mesolithic Diets in the Iron Gates’”

Nehlich and Borić (2015) regard our critique of their original study (Nehlich et al. 2010) as unfair in several respects. In the first place, they maintain that Nehlich et al. (2010) was merely a “pilot study,” and this accounts for the limited data set on which their conclusions were based. The title of the paper, however, describes it as a case study, which is quite different from a pilot study, and the former is the basis on which we chose to reinterpret their data.
