...Mud and straw may be the first composite, discovered by accident in a pile of debris?

Early man's discovery of the first composite material was...animal dung. It was abundant, formable and and relatively durable & lighter weight-to-strength ratio. The excreted binding cellulose held other mixed-earth building materials.
