Long Distance Trade in the Middle Bronze

The molecular and microscopic techniques revealed consumptions of extotic foods like sesame, soybean, probable banana, and turmeric. This new article sheds lights on the complexity of early long trade routes during the second millennium BCE. Link to the article
