    Bronze Age cereal rings discovered

    This discovery from Bronze Age Austria is interesting. The Cheerios comparison is obviously click bait but the similarity to Russian sushki, of which I've eaten my fair share, looks apt. It makes sense that our ancestors would have found ways to preserve and transport grain that are elusive in the archaeological record:

    "Three charred ring-shaped objects were found, consisting of dough made with wheat, barley and fine flour."
