Drinking

One of mankind's oldest pastimes:
Chemical tests on ancient fragments of broken pottery show that Chinese villagers were brewing alcoholic drinks as far back as 7000 BC. That beats the previous record for the oldest evidence of brewing, found in Iran and dated at about 5400 BC.
Now when heading to the bar, you can call it "historical research".
