Prehistoric females bones/upper bodies were....

stonger than olympic rowers and other athletes according to studies discussed in the radio 4 prog Inside Science. This was less in the Iron Age, when different styles of quern/ metals etc... were developed. According to the prog, Studies of indigeonus peoples using saddle querns found it took 5 hours of graft to make the daily requirement of flour. Wow, that's a lot longer than I was expecting.
If you're interested it's in the first little snipet/subject of the broadcast (though one of the later topics about new genetic code for protiens in bacteria was a bit scarey).

Seems like there’s a lot of good stuff on the radio at the moment.
Will give it a listen, cheers.
