German chemists managed to discover the most mysterious delicacy in the world – ancient Chinese cheese. True him taste advantages remain in doubt: it is 3.5 thousand years old lay in the sarcophagi of mummies, which according to unknown archaeologists the reasons were buried with cheese on his chest, writes the Daily Mail. Burial place was found in the Chinese desert of Takla Makan back in 1930 g., and for several decades, mummies were peacefully kept in a local museum. In 1987, one of the European researchers noted that externally mummies are not at all like Asians, and the nature of the burial has no nothing to do with the local traditions of that era. It got serious evidence in favor of the hypothesis that once typical the inhabitants of the present territory of China were tall, fair-haired Caucasians. All mummies from burials dated bronze century (2000 – 800 BC), were European facial features and brown hair braided into braids. They were buried in the desert in peculiar boats wrapped in cowhide, and ideal the temperature of the salt sand surrounding them allowed the clothes and objects that were put in the graves are in good condition. For many years, experts studied clothing, household items and other artifacts of their ancient graves. The turn came to cheese recently, and the results of the study were unexpected. It turned out that the cheese was made atypical for that time – using yeast and bacteria used to this day to create kefir. Prior to this, historians were convinced that for the first time, cheese in China was manufactured, firstly, much later, and secondly, using rennet: the Chinese insisted milk in containers from the intestines and stomachs of animals. The discovery of German chemists is even more confused the story of mummies from the Takla Makan desert. A clear answer to the question about how Caucasians ended up in China long before the start historians still do not have merchant trips to the region. Judging by the appearance of mummies, it can be assumed that these are either Celts, or immigrants from Central Asia, Siberia or Iran. Study cheese, however, crosses out these assumptions, because in all In these regions, the technology of its production was different.
