A detailed technological study is provided and evidence of the use of these tools on the butchery and consumption of fauna, probably by early Homo erectus sensu lato is provided, showing that complex cognition was present from the earliest stages of the Acheulean.

It is suggested, according to these experiments and data drawn from the FLK "Zinj" site, that hominids processed meat-bearing bones rather than defleshed carcasses from felid kills.

The Dikika research group focused its analysis on the morphology of the marks in question but failed to demonstrate the exact provenience of the published fossils, and failed to note occurrences of random striae on the cortices of thepublished fossils, which provide the configurational context for rejection of the claimed butchery marks.
