Seamus Blackley wants to make old-school bread. (Twitter; Threadreader unroll here.) How old would that be? "Just now, the dormant yeast I collected this week from Ancient Egyptian artifacts (with help from @drserenalove and @rbowman1234) is being fed grain for the first time in four and a half thousand years." Starring antiquities, autoclaves, and an actual loaf of Old Kingdom bread. Via kottke.org.
