Archaeologists find ancient evidence of cheese

Milk, it does a body. In the 1970's some Princeton archaeologists dug up a few pots full of small, intentional holes. It took decades, and a lot of conjecture, but around 7,000 years ago people were making cheese. "For decades there was no way to prove his pots were ancient cheese strainers. Now new techniques have finally allowed researchers to analyze residue that had seeped into the clay. And they found that its chemical signature matched cow's milk." (via NPR)
