The Traveller’s
Guide to

Unleavened Bread

(and Herpetology)

by Tiger Peng


The book that you hold in your hands or have pulled up on your
screen represents not simply knowledge, but an adventure
through history and around the entire globe. This journey will
focus on the two most important aspects of the modern world:
the ancient tradition of unleavened bread, and the study of
reptiles and amphibians. Travelling around the world, we will
take a brief look at the various unleavened bread throughout
history, the cultures who made them, the geography of the
regions in which they originated, and one unique reptile or
amphibian from the region. In your adventures as a
herpetologist and yeasted bread hater, I hope that this handy
guide will help you know what to expect!


The consensus among food historians is that the first leavened
bread was created around 1000 B.C in Egypt or Mesopotamia,
with some of the earliest known evidence of domesticated
yeast usage. However, unleavened bread has much a much
longer history. In fact, the earliest known a Pita-like fare, made
of barley and wheat, found in the Black Desert, and dated to be
more than 16,000 years old! This means that unleavened bread
made up some part of the prehistoric diet before the
Agricultural Revolution even started!
