 multidisciplinary analysis of the early hominid Australopithecus africanus by anthropologists….makes sense right?

In an unusual intersection of materials science and anthropology, researchers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and The George Washington University (GWU) have applied materials-science-based mathematical models to help shed light on the dietary habits of some of mankind’s prehistoric relatives.
