Synopsis: Archeological excavations at various sites in Icheri Sheher have opened plenty of tendirs (furnaces for baking bread) allowing the study of the method of baking bread in medieval Baku. Bread baking takes its origins from extreme antiquity. The results of archeological researches show that the tendir for bread baking probably appeared in Azerbaijan and the Trans-Caucasus in the eneolith period and was further developed over time.
