Popcorn wasn’t Invented for the Movies
Study suggests ancient Peruvians ‘ate popcorn’
A new study suggests that people living along the coast of northern Peru were eating popcorn 1,000 years earlier than previously thought.
Researchers say corncobs found at an ancient site in Peru suggest that the inhabitants used them for making flour and popcorn.
Scientists from Washington’s Natural History Museum say the oldest corncobs they found dated from 4700BC.
They are the earliest ever discovered in South America.
