    Apparently, the Vikings discovered how to freeze-dry sea fish - which made it easy for them to transport them to settlements around Europe:

    Viking hordes dined on frozen Norwegian cod shipped to Germany

    Noted especially because of how we underestimate both the ingenuity and trade links of those humans who went before us. :)
