Two workers have discovered an oak barrel, full of butter, estimated to be roughly 3,000 years old, in Gilltown bog, between Timahoe and Staplestown, in Ireland.
According to a report in Leinster Leader, the amazing discovery of the barrel, which is being described by archaeology experts in the National Museum as a "really fine example" was found by two Bord na Mona workers...
What they found was an oak barrel, cut out of a trunk, full of butter. It was largely intact, except for a gash towards the bottom of it caused by the harrow. It was head down, and had a lid; something that has excited the archaeologists. The barrel is also split along the middle, which is common with utensils filled with butter found in the bogs. A conservator at the National Museum, Carol Smith, told the Leinster Leader that the butter expands over time, causing the split...
The butter has changed to white and is now adipocere, which is essentially animal fat, the same sort of substance that is found on well-preserved bodies of people or animals found in the bog... He estimates that the barrel is approximately 3,000 years old, from the Iron Age.

I’ll eat my scone plain, thanks.
Will it be served in some exclusive restaurant or at a UN party?
I don’t quite get the connection to evolution...?
Did Homo Sapiens evolve from butter?
IOW, I don’t get your headline
Can you explain your headline? I’m not very good at deciphering nonsense.
There’s a wink in the headline...
Well, *I* got the joke.
Yeah, and he’s smoking a joint.
Well, *I* got the joke.
You’re ahead of me then.
GGG should appreciate the joke - heh.
i dont get your headline, does the butter preserve temperature history
Empirical proof that the theory of evolution is faulty! I can’t believe...it’s not butter.
Well, that could explain the fascination with a 3000 year old butter story. Everything is better on ‘wee weed’.
Haha The evo connection is margarine at best.
