Oldest Bread Found

I'm not sure that this would be the tastiest flatbread you've ever had but a pretty cool discovery has taken place in northeastern Jordan. Researchers found the charred remains of a flatbread believed to have been baked about 14,500 years ago in a fireplace that was unearthed.

The bread was believed to have been made from wild cereals such as barley, einkorn or oats, and more that was ground into flour.

The discovery changes what scientists thought regarding when we started making bread by about 4000 years. In fact, most of what they discovered at this location tells us that our ancestors were eating meat and bread way before anyone gave them credit.
