Should there be any in this category, I hereby warmly thank them and apologize for the unintended omission. But the processing of the honey and the production of butter, cheese, or yogurt from milk fall into the realm of food processing.
I would also like to thank the Department of Classics at the University of Leeds, which granted me the teaching position of Visiting Professor of Classics during the fall ofand provided lodging and library assistance, plus gracious camaraderie, while I was conducting research in England.
Here, I am thinking particularly of the racking of wine or the storage of preserved fish and their subsequent delivery to market. T i m e and location, however, make A.
While information for wine making in those areas is not plentiful, it is for Egypt. T h e evidence, however, does not remain static. Food technology concerns the knowledge a n d practical application of the principles of food science to the preservation, processing, preparation, packaging, storage, and transportation of food.
Agriculture is closely allied to food processing, since both deal directly with food and neither particularly require skilled individuals.
T h e latter embodies specific and practical know-how gained primarily through observing and copying procedures. Beck, Animal Tool Behavior: This can result from, a m o n g other factors, the m o m e n t u m and direction of the spread of the culture with its technology from one area to another and the rate of adaptation of the innovation in a different environment.
T h e first, which proved a dead end, constituted the robust australopithecines, usually denominated P[aranthr0pus aethiopieus, P. Butterworths,p.
T h e conclusion about technological change that Frances and Joseph Gies have ascribed to the Medieval period applies equally to the ancient world: So, for example, no sooner have archaeologists announced the discovery in one place of the oldest fossil evidence for early man, than in another location comes the claim for a still older fossil.
T h e geographical areas include the ancient Near East, Egypt, and both the eastern and western Mediterranean. T h i s p e r m i t ted a n evolution w h e r e b y e n e r g yotherwise utilized for a larger gut to digest plant foods, was diverted to the b r a i n. It had lain undisturbed from the time of the burial in it of a woman of about sixty years of age.
Others, poisonous in their natural state, can be made safe when properly treated or rendered into a different form. T h e question is, of course, more complicated than this when humans are involved. In some instances, they may have been the instigators of technical innovation if not of invention itself.
In doing so, it goes beyond previous general histories of ancient technology by showing the interrelationship of food technology with ancient society, believing that the former cannot with profit be isolated from the latter.
The former question can be fairly precisely defined; the answer to the latter will occupy the remainder of this book. Although much of ancient technology does depend upon working by hand, it will become clear that in the area of food the ancient world progressed from the use of simple hand tools to complex machines operated by animal or water power designed to produce more and better products more efficiently.
If foods consumed in their natural state without further processing, as nuts, fresh vegetables, fruits, and milk often are, are not in some way altered after harvesting, they do not fall under the category of food technology.
And still others, in a spirit of professional collegiality, materially assisted in obtaining illustrations and permissions to publish them. O t h e r individuals were instrumental in providing a visual component to the book.
T w e n t y Propositions," in ibid. Indeed, outside of the use of weapons, most habitual tool-use behavior of chimpanzees centers on subsistence. My choice has been to approach the topic by culture a n d chronologically within each one.
The Archaeology of Early Humans. This is not an easy task. Studies in Memory of Charles McBurney. Without their patience and generosity my task would have been far more onerous than it otherwise was.
Susan, a professional librarian, contributed her expertise in ferreting out the most obscure references. H e thinks that that link has yet to b e discovered. T h e grape and olive, however, most often receive further treatment after picking, and grains are only selected for their various uses after they have been separated from the stalk through threshing.
Archaeological finds increase almost daily, and scientific instruments become ever more accurate and precise in measuring various aspects of the evidence. T h e second question involved what to do with those subjects that affected food technology but were not part of it.
I have, therefore, restricted my discussion to particular containers that were developed specifically to process foods, and have left to others to treat pottery more widely. I would especially like to thank Catharine Roehrig, who during my visit to the Department of Egyptian Antiquities in the Metropolitan M u s e u m of Art, in New York, gave of her time and expertise in assisting my research, making the trip a memorable and successful one.
Food technology begins at the point when these plant foods undergo specific processes to change their form in some way such as milling grain into Hour or to so alter them as to create a different food product altogether for instance, fermenting grapes into wine.So, for example, as this book was going to press, Cambridge University Press brought out a book entitled Ancient Egyptian Materials and Technology, too late for me to consult.
