Does your stew have its roots in ancient Babylonia?

Long-excavated tablets thought to possibly be medical texts were, instead, determined to be ancient recipe cards. After fine-tuning the ingredients, the cooking team that has been deciphering these recipes has been turning out rather tasty meals. The full article is below:

That's nifty. I have seen some shows with a team of people trying to recreate ancient meals. There were archaeologists. chemists, linguists, and cooks in the teams, if I remember correctly. They spoke with the locals and found out about the local traditional foods and could often figure stuff out based on that.
