Photographer's Note

Evidence of hominin use of fire and cooking in the Middle East dates back as far as 790,000 years,[7] and prehistoric hearths, earth ovens, and burnt animal bones were spread across Europe and the Middle East by at least 250,000 years ago.[8] Excavations of the Minoan settlement of Akrotiri unearthed stone supports for skewers used before the 17th century BC.[9] In ancient times, Homer in the Iliad (1.465) mentions pieces of meat roasted on spits (ὀβελός),[10][11][12] and the Mahabharata, an ancient Indian text, also mentions large pieces of meat roasted on spits.
