A 5,000 year old pay stub has been found. The stub shows that beer was paid for labor. This finding is awesome because it shows accounting in the early days. Wages included in SG&A. It also nicely ties into how book keeping helped civilization develop. Yup, book keeping organized information efficiently, which lead to higher productivity.

I hope they keep find more interesting artifacts 😀


Long time ago, I thought that archaeology and history were boring. However, after realizing their importance, I am just fascinated by the two subjects. We really need to know the past because history rhymes and knowing the past keeps us humble by preventing us from committing folly.
