The oldest evidence of cold food storage dates back to 1700 BCE. Remains of an ice house were discovered in Assyria, modern-day Iraq. It would have been a simple structure, dome-shaped with a layer of snow recessed below ground level. This marks one of the very first human efforts to preserve cooked meat.

Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
