Duchess Ysabeau introduced me to an interesting book, World Sourdoughs from 
Antiquity. I don't have the ISBN handy, but this is a cool book. The whole
preface is about the author's desire and eventual success in working with
Egyptologists and archaeologists who had uncovered that Egyptian bakery
that dates fomr the time of the pyramids. He was able to recreate a very
similar sourdough believed to be just like what the builders of the pyramids
ate. It's got lots of recipes and explanations.

In service,

Though we are not now that strength, which in old days moved earth and heaven,
that which we are, we are. One equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time
and fates, but strong in will. To strive, to seek, to find and not to yield.
