I was suprised to find this online grains 790,000 tears ago?

The first solid evidence of human use of fire in Eurasia as early as 790,000 years ago has been found in excavations in Israel conducted by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem Institute of Archaeology.

"findings of burned fragments of flint, wood, fruit and grains, indicating that the early humans living at Benot Yaaqov knew how to control fire and use it to process food."

Yeah, i thought fire was started to be used for cooking only 40,000 years ago...maybe i can bbq my steak after all.

I was more surprised about the presence of grains actually.

That is surprising. I think fire has been linked back to H. Erectus sites that are 1.5 million years old. Good stuff!

That doesn't mean that there was domestication of grains. I think The Paleo Diet (could've been something else) mentioned that because grains are hard to process and not available in any quantity, they would've been very rare in the H-G diet. That doesn't mean that they didn't consume them on occasion that they came across them. In fact, H-G's probably ate most anything available when they were overly hungry.
