and not just because the mummy of Ramses II the Egyptian Pharaoh during the Exodus was found with two peppercorns stuffed up its royal nostrils The pungent dried fruit was used variously as a spice digestive aid aphrodisiac preservative and currency from the Mediterranean to the Far East Available only in south India at the time the commodity along with other fragrant spices came to affect the socio-geopolitics of the world as well as pushed the ports of Kerala and other regions onto the centrestage While little is known about the intricacies of the trade between Muziris Egypt and other cradles of civilisation there are vague references from the time of King Solomon arriving at the Malabar coast as well as from other Middle-eastern territories When the Romans conquered Egypt in 30 BC the empire learned of the maritime routes along the Indian Ocean and Arabian and Red seas The Romans set sail with amphorae of olive oil and wines chests of gold and silver and their famed pottery exchanging these for semi-precious stones fabrics and of course spices Of these pepper was paramount and though prohibitively expensive soon found its way into every rich Roman’s cellar and into their meals;

while Chinese fishing nets are now synonymous with the Malabar coast the Arabs introduced the Indians to ghee biryani stuffed meat dishes and of course coffee sourced from the ancient Yemenese port of Mocha Still Muziris was not without its problems; its muddy banks and shallow waters prevented large ships from entering the harbour Calicut to the north and Muziris to the south were preferred destinations for larger ships with Muziris acting as a conduit between the two ports Finally a “cyclonic flood” smashed against the Kerala coast in 1341 By dramatically changing the coastline as well as the mouth of the Periyar river it erased Muziris from the land All traces of it remained a mystery until a team of archaeologists uncovered a hoard of Roman coins in 1983 some seven kilometres from the village of Pattanam which was to become the main excavation as well as the site for the Muziris Heritage Project an initiative of the Kerala Government and UNESCO After seven seasons of excavations over 70 hectares of the site came the Khor Rori House — named after a derelict town in Oman which was the chief source of frankincense a commodity valued highly in ancient times and a major import of Muziris and other trading centres The museum showcases these findings and attempt to reconstruct life in Muziris during its heydays As you walk into the museum you face the tangible remnants of Muziris — from the roughly carved rings and ornaments from different parts of the ancient world to pottery such as platters and vessels On another side lie tiny charms made from amber and an intaglio of Fortuna the Roman goddess of luck Knives and other implements are also displayed transmuting from bronze to iron as the dwellers learned how to coax out more and more metals from their ores Prominent on one side is a copy of Peutinger’s Table an illustrated map with all the known routes during the Roman Empire covering Europe (sans the British Isles and Spain which were uncharted at the time) northern Africa and large chunks of Asia On that13th century map Muziris is marked prominently with a depiction of an Augustine temple By the 14th century other European nations were tired of Italian dominance over maritime and land routes Ferdinand Magellan’s discovery of the African sea route made Portugal a powerful player In 1498 Vasco da Gama landed in Kozhikode in the first Portuguese expedition to the subcontinent He returned to Lisbon with a cargo that included pepper purchased at a fraction of the cost at which the Italians sold it Portugal established factories along the Malabar Coast starting with Kerala the jewel of which was the Kottapuram Fort Tired of the Portuguese influence over Kochi the kingdom’s prime minister secretly asked the Dutch in Ceylon to destroy the Portuguese and provided them with the plans for Kottapuram Fort A Dutch fleet was duly dispatched and defeated the Portuguese Today Kottapuram Fort stands in ruins What also remains is that taste for black pepper spread around the world where it accounts for one-fifth of the total spice trade in the world having become as natural as salt India is no longer the world’s only source of pepper and is not even its top producer providing a mere 11 per cent of the global total And yet it was a small coastal state in the south of India that first grew this dried berry which came to determine the course of history for a large part of the world For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Express News Service | Kolkata | Published: March 26 2009 2:38 am Related News Its a role reversalalbeit a forced onefor the Congress leaders like Deepa Dasmunsi and Nirbed Roy who were bitterly opposed to an alliance with the Trinamool not so long agobut now have to swallow the bitter pill to campaign for Mamata Banerjees party On Wednesdaythe Congress leaders and workers passed a resolution to take to streets to campaign for Banerjee whether or not the Trinamool officially invites them The moveCongress leaders saidis in line with their aim to form a Congress-led government at the Centre and to wipe out CPM from the state The decision was taken at a workers conference that the Congress organised at Ashutosh Memorial Hall in South Kolkata Though Dasmunsi was not there at the meetshe told The Indian Express? “However, see like humans “The first couple of days, 2017 6:32 pm Redmi 4X is a budget smartphone, encompasses practically every discipline, “We have been working on issues pertaining to the environment for years… we decided to involve more people in our work to clean Ramnadi, Trophies were awarded to the victorious houses on the basis of house wise results of cultural activities throughout the year.
