Previous experimental studies on cut marks have suggested that cut mark percentages and their anatomical distribution (based on element type and bone section type) could be used to differentiate primary access to fleshed carcasses from secondary access to defleshed carcasses. In this study, the experimental sample of this type of studies is increased and further data are included to infer a primary access by hominids to carcasses at the FLK Zinj site of Olduvai.
