After actually finishing reading all the introduction, instead of just skimming and looking at the recipes, each recipe has a symbol indicating the earliest period where archeological evidence has been found to indicate use of the ingredients.

another interesting tidbit: "The first European cookery book, probably written in France, was translated into Danish as early as the 13th century. The exotic spices mentioned in this book such as saffron, pepper and nutmeg have, however, not been documented archaeologically in Northern Europe at this time,"
