I saw this piece of news today where they have found pottery shards dating from 18,000 years ago in Yuchanyan Cave.
"Pottery initially serves as a cooking and storage facility. Later on, some pottery vessels become symbols of power and social status, as well as examples of art," Lu said. "Pottery is still an important part of human culture today."
Yeah, cooking and storage. We got that. It'll be interesting to see if they find any evidence of fermented beverages from this site. You gotta figure, as soon as someone figured how to make a pot, one of Oskaar's ancestors was there figuring out how to ply the redheads with his brew.
