Ancient noodles


An undated handout photograph, released October 12, 2005, shows noodles dating back 4,000 years on top of an in-filled sediment cone. Italians are known for them and theories suggest they may have originated in the Middle East but scientists said on Wednesday the world’s oldest known noodles, dating back 4,000 years, were made in China. Houyuan Lu, of the Chinese Academy of Science in Beijing and his colleagues found the ancient noodles preserved in an overturned, sealed bowl at an archaeological site near the Yellow River in northwestern China.
