Since ancient times people ate mushrooms. This is the conclusion of anthropologists in the study of remains discovered in Northern Spain. In addition to the particles of food of animal origin, the researchers found between teeth in people of the stone age mushroom spores.
Mushrooms scientists have attributed to the species boletus and plate. The second type presumably roasted on the fire. In the ancient human diet was also part of the roots of plants, the pollen of pine and various seeds.
This is the first documented case of eating mushrooms in the Paleolithic period. During the Neolithic and bronze age people began to use psychotropic mushrooms to achieve a particular state.
