14,000 Year-Old Piece Of Bread Rewrites The History...

I know that I mentioned this bread thing a while back in one of the threads. Wanted to have it commemorated as a separate "break through" of our archaeologists, and have it as a part of the collection. So there we have it, 14k year old bread crumbs...

Even bread was indestructible back in the day :ROFLMAO:
When an archaeologist working on an excavation site in Jordan first swept up the tiny black particles scattered around an ancient fireplace, she had no idea they were going to change the history of food and agriculture.

Special thanks goes to...

KD: Discoveries like these are awesome. They allow our scientific community to avoid looking for real stuff. Informational injections of this type contribute to the maintenance of the narrative, IMHO. They also numb our brains. What dinner leftovers would survive for over 10,000 years?
