Archaeologists have discovered an amazing structure in Armenia – a bakery that was built more than 3,000 years ago. This proves that the culture of baking bread was known in ancient times and was of great importance for people’s lives.
The bakery was found in the town of Hayrapet, on the territory of Arin Baird Archaeological Reserve. It still stores the flour that was used to bake bread more than 3000 years ago. This allows scientists to study ancient recipes and technologies of bread making.
Researchers believe that the bakery was used to bake bread not only for the locals, but also for trade. This shows that the culture of baking bread was very developed in ancient times and was of great importance to the economy of the region.
According to scholars, baking bread in ancient times was not only an art, but also a science. Each recipe was carefully studied and handed down from generation to generation. Thus, bread making techniques became an integral part of Armenian culture and history.
Today, baking bread remains an important part of Armenian culture. The locals continue to adhere to the ancient recipes and traditions that were inherited from their ancestors.
