How the cavemen ate: Cookbook reveals 77 recipes stretching right back to the Stone Age (and they taste surprisingly good!)
Fancy something new for dinner tonight? Well if you don't fancy a Chinese or a Thai, researchers have pulled together 77 recipes which were eaten during the Stone Ages.
And the surprise is how delicious the recipes, some of them 16,000 years old, sound - with your typical Neolithic families spicing up their meals and using plenty of fresh fruit and herbs along with the simmering main dishes of game.
A Culinary Journey Through Time can join Jamie Oliver and Gordon Ramsay on the bookshelves of adventurous cooks, with recipes such as pepper sausage with pine nuts, spicy bread containing goat cheese, bay leaves and aniseed, and cucumber layered with mint and vinegar. The recipes are organised by season, and combine menus from the Stone Age, the days of the Romans, and recipes from the Vikings and Middle Age chefs.
While many recipes are labour-intensive, and require obscure ingredients like 'liquamen' - a preservative made from salt, fish, oregano and apple juice - they can provide a challenge for those who can stomach it. The menus were compiled bu three Danish archaeologists, based on evidence such as cookware, art depicting meal-times, and analysis of bones and plan material found in cooking pots from the eras.
Reporter Sara Reardon, writing for New Scientist, gave some of the recipes a go, and gave them the Stone Age version of the thumbs-up.
She enjoyed the experience, despite some reservations, such as: 'Never before have I seen a recipe that called for an entire cup of salt, but Im fairly certain that the bottle of liquamen in my fridge will never spoil.

The Neandertal EnigmaFrayer's own reading of the record reveals a number of overlooked traits that clearly and specifically link the Neandertals to the Cro-Magnons. One such trait is the shape of the opening of the nerve canal in the lower jaw, a spot where dentists often give a pain-blocking injection. In many Neandertal, the upper portion of the opening is covered by a broad bony ridge, a curious feature also carried by a significant number of Cro-Magnons. But none of the alleged 'ancestors of us all' fossils from Africa have it, and it is extremely rare in modern people outside Europe." [pp 126-127]
