No advanced civilization without flour

You think you know all there is to know about flour? But: how long has it played a role in human nutrition? When and where was it first cultivated? What consequences did the new diet have for man? And what do mythical figures like the Chinese Shennong, the brothers Ninazu and Ninmada from Sumer and the Hopi maiden “Blue Maize” have to do with flour? Stories, pictures and facts about the cultural effects of flour are waiting to be discovered in this room behind the Wall of Cereals and the Egyptian temple façade.
