Ancient Pills

This is interesting.  I had never heard of archaeobotanists before.

At first it seemed that the plants were ordinary and boring (what did they think celery does?), but then I realized that there are only so many plants that have had their DNA sequenced.  There were probably a lot of plants in there that we do not have in libraries because the DNA has not been sequenced yet.
