“The consumption of wild cereals among prehistoric hunters and gatherers appears to be far more ancient than previously thought,” said study author Julio Mercader.
Indeed, scientific evidence until now showed the practice started only 12,000 years ago at the closing stages of the last Ice Age.
Mercader said in his study he found the oldest example of early man’s extensive consumption of cereal and root staples in a deep limestone cave near Lake Niassa in Mozambique.
