Blog: Oldest grain of rice found in Korea

Catherine Sleep | 21 October 2003

Rice is the primary food for over half of the world’s population. But did you know it dates back 15,000 years? Archaeologists in Korea have found a handful of domesticated rice while excavating the village of Sorori in Chungbuk Province.

Rice had previously been thought to have originated in China about 12,000 years ago, but radioactive dating has pushed this back a good 3000 years. Nice to think that not EVERYTHING we eat has evolved (or been bred) beyond all recognition.
