Scientists pinpoint the age of cheese

The age of cheese has come and gone.

Scientists have reportedly discovered pottery fragments that suggest cheese-making is a much older process than previously thought.

The pottery pieces, which have small holes throughout, are thought to be more than 7,000 years old and may have been used to separate curds from whey, according to a newly published article.
