What did they eat? How did they cook?

We discovered a possible answer to two more of our questions in our current guided reading book. The Neolithic people ground flour from seeds, mixed in with water to make a dough and cooked the bread on stones heated by fire. We were excited to try this in our Neolithic archaeology experiment!

It was the best bread that some of us had ever tasted even if we were a bit dirty afterwards!It must have been so much work just to make one little piece of bread!
