Very Stale Food
Noodles, moon cakes and porridge from cemetery in the deserts of western China, dating to around 500 BC. "The archaeologists also found bows, arrows, saddles, leather chest-protectors, boots, woodenwares, knives, an iron aw, a leather scabbard, and a sweater in the graves." I provide a link to the article in the interests of scholarship, but I caution anyone who might read it that it is mainly nonsense. Bad translation from the Chinese? Who knows.
