nibalism presented a way to get through the lean times or a satisfying way to get rid of outsiders—requires knowledge not yet available to archaeologists. Even in the case of the Anasazi, who have been well studied, it is impossible to determine whether cannibalism resulted from starvation or was rooted in religious beliefs, or was some combination of these and other things.
