Hi Chris,

since you’re for sure more knowledeable about hunter-gatherers than me and because I am too lazy to research it for myself now: What do you know about how they dealt with menstruation.
I am not only thinking of culture or morals which probably weren’t as uptight as during later millenia, but I am particularly interested in the practical side. I mean, there were no tampons around then. Or were they?
I’ve heard, that groups of women living together tend to menstruate all at the same time. Perhaps the band was just taking some time off at the lake when the “red days” were there, because it was a little impractical for the ladies to walk around while the blood was dripping?

You perhaps get the idea now, about what I am asking.

Lazy thanks
