It seems that the much maligned Frogs’ legs which gave the French their playful nickname of ‘froggies’ were actually eaten first BY BRITS up to 8,000 years ago.

Archaeologists working on a site close to Stonehenge discovered the charred leg bone of a toad dating back to between 6250 BC and 7596 BC.

A spokesperson for the University of Buckingham described it as “the earliest evidence of a cooked toad or frog leg found in the world’.
