Noodles in China date back ancient history and one of the written proof is from a book dated to the Han dynasty (206 BC – 220 AD) Noodles often made from wheat dough, became a prominent staple of food during the Han dynasty. In 2002 archaeologists found an earthenware bowl containing world's oldest known noodles, about 4000 years old.
