Best before…

14Dec10

Metaphorical threads connecting you to the past are all very nice and poetic. But they are not a bowl of soup.

Archaeologists in China have discovered a 2,400 year-old cauldron of soup. Still containing liquid. Although it is a bit cold now.

That’s a good, non-metaphorical link to our ancestors. I’m sure that shortly we will hear exactly what was in the soup. My money is on some sort of domestic fowl with onions and perhaps a bit of ginger.

I’m not surprised that they found some ancient soup. I was served the accompanying bread rolls at a hotel in Worthing a few years ago. It was only a matter of time.
