Did you know the Greek and Latin words for spoon are derived from cochlea, or “spiral shell”? That’s because seashell was one of the very first materials used to make eating utensils. Way back in the Stone Age, early humans were hollowing shells into spoons and fork-like pokers and attaching wooden handles. These are a little less rudimentary, but we love the simplicity of little utensils made from shell, bone, and horn.
