Bread, in one form or another, has been one of the principal forms of food for man from earliest times. The trade of the baker, then, is one of the oldest crafts in the world. Loaves and rolls have been found in ancient Egyptian tombs. In the British Museum's Egyptian galleries you can see actual loaves which were made and baked over 5,000 years ago. Also on display are grains of wheat, which ripened, in those ancient summers under the Pharaohs. Wheat has been found in pits where human settlements flourished 8,000 years ago. Bread, both leavened and unleavened, is mentioned in the Bible many times. The ancient Greeks and Romans knew bread for a staple food even in those days’ people argued whether white or brown bread was best.
Further back, in the Stone Age, people made solid cakes from stone-crushed barley and wheat. A millstone used for grinding corn has been found, that is thought to be 7,500 years old. The ability to sow and reap cereals may be one of the chief causes, which led man to dwell in communities, rather than to live a wandering life hunting and herding cattle. The ruins of Pompeii and other buried cities have revealed the kind of bakeries existing in those historic times. There were public bakeries where the poorer people brought their bread to be baked, or from which they could buy ready-baked bread.
A Bakers' Guild was formed in Rome round about the year 168 BC From then on the industry began as a separate profession. The Guild or College, called Collegium Pistorum, did not allow the bakers or their children to withdraw from it and take up other trades. The bakers in Rome at this period enjoyed special privileges: they were the only craftsmen who were freemen of the city, all other trades being conducted by slaves. The members of the Guild were forbidden to mix with 'comedians and gladiators' and from attending performances at the amphitheater, so that they might not be contaminated by the vices of the ordinary people. We suppose that the bakers, instead of being honored by the strict regulations, must have felt deprived by them.
Bread rolls are very common in Europe and Western countries like the Germany, Austria, Australia, New Zealand and Canada. In Germany and Austria, there is a large variety of bread rolls ranging from white to dark rolls made with wheat flour and dark flour containing mostly the rye flour. There are many variations that include spices such as coriander, cumin, nuts, sesame seeds and poppy seeds.
There are many names for bread rolls, especially in local dialects. Originally, these originated with bakers terms for different forms of bread roll depending on how the dough was made and how the roll was cooked. Bread rolls are comfort food eaten with butter for special weekend breakfasts; some like to put cheese, jam, ham or salami. A bread roll is perfect when it has the right balance of soft and chewy insides and mildly crusty outside.
