On the origins of butter

I’ve always wondered how butter was invented. What made someone think “I’ll put some fresh cream in a barrel and churn it around to see what happens!”? Some academics believe butter was discovered by accident when ancient nomads stored milk in skins or organ bags. One time I saw an antique butter churn for sale, I thought about buying it but it was like $200 dollars and I don’t want to spend that kind of money. Especially since you can make butter in a sealed off mason jar!

Even more intriguing to me is how bread was invented. I’ve never seen a satisfactory answer to that!
