First cows milked 8,000 years ago in Syria


This video is called Global Treasures BOSRA Syria.

From Leiden university in the Netherlands:

Use of milk 3,000 years older than thought

Using cow‘s milk for direct consumption, cheese, butter and yoghurt looks like a typical Dutch tradition. Yet, Syrians eight thousand years ago were the first people to milk cattle. A group of archaeologists discovered this. In Nature of 7 August they will report on this.

Tomorrow, Wednesday 6 October, at 18:00 Central European time, a more extensive article on this will be at the Leiden University site.
