Researchers found 24 breadcrumbs from the world's oldest bread. They found them in Jordan. The crumbs are about 14,000 years old. This means that Stone Age people were baking bread. This is 4,000 years earlier than we thought. The people were hunter-gatherers. They lived thousands of years before humans became farmers.

The Stone Age people made flour from wheat and barley. They mixed this with water. After that, they baked it on a hot stone. The bread looked like pitta bread. A researcher said the bread could be why the agricultural revolution started. It was easier to farm the wheat instead of getting it from the wild.
