Edible Archaeology: Late Glacial Stratigraphy

1 min read


My wife and I work in the sandy wetlands  of north-west Belgium, and she  made this cake for a colleague who had  been working on Mesolithic-Neolithic  site of Bazel-‘Sluis’, near Antwerp. The  marbling matches the Late Glacial-Early Holocene stratigraphy in the  area (with some added humour about  our heads in the sand).
