Pepper's rich history can be traced through the records of ancient Rome, the monastic records of the Middle Ages, and the logs of early traders and explorers.
In 1180, A Guild of Pepperers - the most important guild of the time - was in existence in London.
Often equated with money, pepper has been used for taxes, rent, dowries and ransom.
When Alaric the Goth besieged Rome, gold, silver, and pepper were demanded as ransom. (The gold and silver were easy enough to come by, but the pepper gave them some trouble.)
The quest of pepper largely defines the history of the spice trade.
Pepper is native to the monsoon areas of southeast Asia.
Over 13 types of black pepper are grown commercially today, primarily in India, Indonesia, Malaysia, and China.
