The body was that of a man who had lived over 5,000 years ago. He had been caught in the big freeze with the entrance of the ice age. What made this so unique were the things he carried with him. One of these items was a small leather pouch of herbs. The herbs were reputed to be for medicinal purposes.
Herbs have been used for trading in ancient times. Travels to the far east brought wonderful spices like ginger and cinnamon to Europe. Sage was in demand in Asia. From the desire to have these aromatic and medicinal plants came many trade routes. The demand for herbs opened many doors to different cultures.

Most mints can settle an upset stomach. For the longest time, herbs were the only medicines anyone knew about. Once it was realized that supernatural spirits were not the cause of many illnesses, herbs became more and more important.
