One man who is head-over-heels in love with baking is Seamus Blackley, a scientist who used 4,500-year-old yeast to bake a loaf of bread. That’s as cool as it looks delicious! It seems like doing this project was one of the happiest moments in the scientist’s entire life. Fun fact: Blackley is known far and wide as the father of the Xbox. From baking to consoles, talk about the 21st century’s Leonardo da Vinci.
Seamus Blackley collected ancient yeast samples from 4,500-year-old Egyptian pottery
After waiting for a week, it was time to get baking!
The scientist used the same ingredients Ancient Egyptians used for their bread
