3,000-year-old butter found in bog

An oak barrel full of 3,000-year-old butter has been found in a bog in Ireland.

“We got down to have a look. We knelt down and felt something hard and started to dig it out with out bare hands,” John explained.

“We could smell it. And it was attracting crows,” he added. What they found was an oak barrel, cut out of a trunk, full of butter.

  1. I bet there is a Japanese gourmand somewhere who will be willing to pay millions of $$ for this butter. And it will be worth even more once they find the 3,000 year-old bread.
