Appetitive: Want to Try 2,000 Year Old Food?

Want to try 2,000 year old food? Well, you're chance just came up. According to the Daily Mail, a roman shipwreck has been discovered that is so well preserved, there is still food in the jars. It sounds absolutely amazing. Maybe this is one archaeological report I will actually read.


  1. That's awesome! Too bad they weren't prepared dishes, though, just pickled fish. Hey, you wouldn't happen to know how to make the Spartan "black broth" would you?

    1. Sadly, I don't have a recipe. Although I bet it was disgusting. I checked my two books on Greek food and found nothing. According to Wikipedia the recipe has been lost, but I would be willing to bet that some experimental archaeologists have tried to reconstruct it. I'll see what I can find out.
