Ancient Greeks might have used portable grills to make bread.

Washington, January 10 ( ANI ): The ancient Mycenaeans used portable grill pits to make souvlaki and non-stick pans to make bread, it has been found.

According to new cooking experiments, the Mycenaean civilization, which thrived more than 3,000 years ago during the late Bronze Age, may have been quite sophisticated cooks as archaeologists have found less glamorous artifacts, such as souvlaki trays and griddles made from gritty clays, Discovery News reported.

Julie Hruby of Dartmouth College said that it's unclear how these two types of pans were used by the civilization which was the backdrop for Homer's 'Odyssey' and 'Iliad' as there are no recipes available, just some tablets that talk about provisions for feasts.

While presenting her research at the Archaeological Institute of America's annual meeting, Hruby added that the society, which mysteriously collapsed around 1200 BC, mixed American clays to mimic Mycenaean clay and created two griddles and two souvlaki trays in the ancient style. ( ANI )
