The article deals with baking techniques and tools for the production of bread-like foods from Near Eastern Prehistoric contexts. Aim is that of understanding when bread-like products start to be cooked in the Near East, how they were produced and what they looked like. Ingredients, ancient utensils and baking techniques are investigated and ethnographic analogies suggested. The analysis is further enriched by a comparison with techniques and tools attested in historical periods and in ancient texts (as baking moulds and recipes).
