Culture, history, and meals per day

In the US and I think much of Europe, the idea of three meals a day, with possible snacks, is treated as if it's set in stone. I'd like to know what alternatives there have been in different time periods and cultures.

This is about history and culture, not current science or eating fads.

I've already found this BBC article, which was somewhat helpful in how the idea of three meals a day developed, but less helpful in terms of alternatives and not at all helpful for anything outside of Europe. I also found this article about monks and the Rule of Benedict.

Articles about history and culture would be helpful, as would personal knowledge from your own culture or a culture you are familiar with. Not interested in guesses (e.g., stone age people must have xyz).
