One person on the planet to enjoy such a treat to have been able — he made the ancient bread myself, using 4500-year-old yeast.

Egyptian Samples of yeast were taken from the walls of the ancient vessels that were used by the Egyptians for making bread and beer. Yes, bakery products and popular alcoholic beverage existed already during the reign of the pharaohs. It is believed that yeast (microscopic fungi that cause fermentation), have been used for beer production 13 000 years ago. First the bread is about 14.4 thousand years ago, but scientists do not know exactly yeast it was, or still fresh.

A Man named Seamus Blackley, a popular game developer, received the samples of ancient yeast because of the friendship of Egyptologists Serena Lav and Richard Bowman. Scientists collected the yeast from the walls of the ancient vessels for the study of reproduction and determine the exact age, but was generous and shared a part of the yeast with his friend.

Bringing liquid samples of home yeast in sealed containers, the man gently mixed them with svejesmolotym barley and wheat flour. To prevent the penetration of the future of the leaven of modern microbes, an Amateur cook only used sterilized utensils. After a week of fermentation, he got ready for baking sourdough bread. The man said that the smell of it is very different from the mixtures obtained with the use of modern yeast.
