Greetings!

Studying the cultural ties of women in some ethnic groups who crave
earth/earthen material in pregnancy. Have found some releationship to
clays in S. America and history of clay tablets from certain places in
Mexico - nutrients are equal to those minerals found in pregnancy
vitamins. Some practices originate in Africa and were brought to south by
displaced african american women in the S. USA. Looking for archeological
connections in physical anthropology to back up through human history.
Anyone familiar with this practice, please share.
