Archaeology is awesome! It teaches history and anthropology all at once and offers insight into the way people lived thousands and thousands of years ago. And it’s a job I could never do because I don’t have the patience to dig for 20 years and only ever find pot sherds. I want there to be a flag that says “DIG HERE. SOMETHING IMPORTANT BELOW.”
Anyway, I ran across this article today and learned about how the turkeys we eat are descended from a breed first tamed by the Aztecs 2000 years ago. Cool! However, up until about 1100, they weren’t bred for their meat, but for their feathers.
