Microscopic examination of debris from their ancient garbage pits shows the
inhabitants
ate
venison and turkey, plus what are today considered weeds. One common dish
was a sort of
pancake made from the seeds of knot weed.

***And today, we still eat them and call them buckwheat pancakes.  If you
come across anymore agriculture/food info related to this find, I'd very
much enjoy reading about it.
