Frogs' Legs, Auroch Steaks, Yum!

October 16, 2013

From The Guardian: "Archaeologists digging about a mile away from Stonehenge have made a discovery that appears to overturn centuries of received wisdom: frogs' legs were an English delicacy around eight millennia before becoming a French one."

Working at a site near Amesbury, University of Buckingham researcher David Jacques says: "We can see people eating huge pieces of aurochs, cows which are three times the size of a normal cow, and we've got wild boar, red deer and hazelnuts."
