Roasted frog was on menu for ancient Britons

At a dig near Stonehenge in England, archaeologists have found the remains of roasted frogs, suggesting the creature may have been a popular meal at the end of the last ice age. John Hall, at The Independent, reports on what is clearly the most important part of this revelation:

The discovery means that the French - far from being the inventors of the amphibious delicacy - are likely to have stolen it from British cuisine at some point in the 8,000 or so years between the Blick Mead banquet and the 12th Century AD - when church records first refer to frogs’ legs being eaten in France.
