Since we humans settled down into agricultural communities and domesticated animals, about ten thousand years ago, we have been pickling vegetables, salting meats, and aging cheese. Butchering, in particular, seems an ancient art, with rituals and practices dating back to our oldest ancestors, the hunters. Historically speaking, stuffing meat into intestines came later, but eating animals has been an integral part of human development.
The Germans take that very seriously, and the German Butcher Museum shows a curious visitor all you could want to know about meats. The museum is Boblingen, in southern Germany about 200 km from Zurich, Switzerland.
