'evolutionary' psych

So there is this expectation that in prehistoric times, all the women gathered and never hunted, and all the men hunted and never gathered.

It seems to me that people who hold these opinions have a blatant lack of knowledge of, eg, Greek and Roman mythology, and need to read up on who the god of the hunt was (hint: 'Diana/Artemis').
Also, it is daft to assume that hungry hunters would pass a bush full of ripe berries or not pick the edible mushrooms they happened by.
