    In terms of our ancient British ancestors, before agriculture arrived about 6,000 years ago, the diet would have most likely included a lot of shellfish, other seafood, wild fruits and berries, honey, nuts, root vegetables and legumes, and, of course, wild game, but not grain nor obviously anything ‘exotic’ or processed, no dairy and no ‘domestic’ meat. Moreover, this would have been subject to seasonality and been varied. Archaeological research suggests that prior to farming, shellfish foraged from coastal areas was very often the dish of the day in pre-Neolithic Britain.
