      'STONE AGE' RECREATION INCLUDES DUNG IN RECIPE

      Historians have recreated a "Stone Age" beer flavored with animal dung, and
      put it on sale in the Orkney Islands off northern Scotland. Merryn Dineley,
      a Manchester University historian and chief brewer of the ancient beer, told
      the weekly paper, The Observer, on Sunday that the brew was "quite
      delicious." The ale is brewed in clay pots with traces of baked animal
      droppings. He and others recreated the recipe after uncovering what they
      claim is a 5,000-year-old pub and brewery on the remote archipelago. Dineley
      examined stone-lined drains running under houses in the neolithic village of
      Skara Brae in the Orkneys and found evidence of a kiln for malting grain and
      traces of a cereal- based fermented alcohol.

        This will explain Rachel's strong constitution.
