8,600-year-old bread was found in Turkey

Archaeologists have discovered bread about 8,600 years old at Çatal Güyük, a Neolithic settlement in central Turkey.

In a Neolithic settlement in Turkey, archaeologists discovered bread that is about 8,600 years old. This is reported by Arkeonews.

During excavations in the settlement of Çatal Güyük in central Turkey, archaeologists discovered a destroyed oven. Around her lay seeds of wheat, barley, peas, as well as several finds that looked like food.

Analysis revealed that the small round spongy residue was a fermented bread dating to 6600 BC.

"The fact that the structure was covered with thin clay allowed all these organic remains, both wooden and bread, to be preserved to this day," said one of the excavation participants, Ali Umut Turkjan.

The earliest known evidence of sourdough bread comes from Egypt, he said, while the new find predates all others, making it the oldest bread in the world.

"We can say that the find from Çatal-Hüyük is the oldest bread in the world. It is a reduced version of a loaf of bread. It has a fingerprint in the center, it was not baked, but it was fermented and has survived to this day with starch inside. There is no such example yet it was," Turkdzhan assured.
