A brie(f) history of cheese

Before empires and royalty, before pottery and writing, before metal tools and weapons – there was cheese. As early as 8000 BCE, Neolithic farmers began a legacy of cheesemaking almost as old as civilization. Today, the world produces roughly 22 billion kilograms of cheese a year, shipped and consumed around the globe.

Learn how cheese was first discovered and developed across a wide variety of cultures. From TED-Ed: A brie(f) history of cheese by Paul S. Kindstedt, animated by Charlotte Cambon.
