"A Neolithic burial pit in Herxheim, Germany is found filled to the brim with expertly butchered human remains. Undeniable cut marks and scrapes are etched upon the bones. Archaeologists have never seen anything like it. The deeper they dig, the more they uncover, the more bizarre the scene becomes. Deliberately smashed pieces of fine pottery and expertly crafted stone tools litter the site along with dog skeletons and horns. What happened at this burial place to contains such strange artifacts - and why? As the experts continue to explore the mysterious site, some have come to believe that our European ancestors gathered in Herxheim to be sacrificed and eaten. But can they prove it?"

April 2, 2008 - A twenty minute interview with Carole on CJAD 800AM Montreal.

Dear Carole,

Thank you for being a guest on Holder Tonight. It was a pleasure to have you on the program to talk about cannibalism and to share some of the insight from your book, Dinner with a Cannibal: The Complete History of Mankind's Oldest Taboo.
Taboo indeed! This is an issue that most people don´┐┐t want to discuss so it was rather interesting to hear your insight into the topic and share that with our audience. It was a fun and informative segment of the show.

Respectfully yours,
Peter Anthony Holder

CHICAGO (Wireless Flash) -- A new book is fleshing out the truth about cannibalism.
"Dinner with a Cannibal: The Complete History of Mankind's Oldest Taboo" (Santa Monica Press), chronicles the history of cannibalism, and researching the juicy, stomach-churning story was a delicious task for author Carole Travis-Henikoff.
She says, "At first it was disgusting, but I've never had as much fun! I got to have doctors over to lunch -- not for lunch -- and pick their brains!"
The book outlines nine types of cannibalism, including survival cannibalism, iatric cannibalism -- prescribed by a doctor -- and endo-cannibalism, or eating your own dead.
Travis-Henikoff calls cannibalism "the oldest eating habit on the planet," and though it'll always be taboo, she isn't against putting a person on her plate.
She says, "If I was starving and it was the only way to survive, I'd do it in a heartbeat."
"Dinner with a Cannibal" is out now.

April 14, 2008 at 6:00AM EST (+10 GMT) - Interview with Carole on radio station 2CC Canberra, Australia with host Mike Jeffreys on the Breakfast Show.

Mike Jeffreys was yet another nice, quick-of-mind talk show host who asked all the right questions for many minutes and then dropped the bomb as to why he had called all the way from Australia. Seems that some twenty years ago two female lovers killed a twenty-year old male and drank his blood. They have been in jail ever since. The Australian government is in the process of paroling one of the women and the Australians are having a fit as the general populous seems to believe that cannibalism is addictive. It's not.

April 18, 2008 - Article on Courant.com (website for The Hartford Courant).

Two new scholarly books explore cannibal history. "Dinner With a Cannibal" (Santa Monica Press, $25) by Carole A. Travis-Henikoff, takes a look at the cannibals in our ancestral closets. Subtitled "The Complete History of Mankind's Oldest Taboo," the book "investigates not only the subject of cannibalism, but when and why people ate those of their own kind and continue to do so to this very day," the book jacket states.
