Evidence of Beer-making Found in Epic Ancient Egyptian Ruins
Turns out the ancient Egyptians were brew heads.
A team of archeologists from the University of Chicago has found not one but two buildings that, according to The Independent, are believed to have been used for making bread and beer.
The dig site was in a Nile Valley town called Tell Edfu, which is also notable for housing the famed Temple of Horus, seen above. Archaeologists have been working it for the past 16 years. These new structures were unearthed at the end of 2019, and the containers and artifacts in them suggest they were devoted to wheat-focused activities like making bread and beer. Egyptian archaeology Professor Nadine Moeller, who co-led the expedition, was very stoked about the findings and noted that there aren’t any sets of buildings like this from the time period that have been found.
“It’s a wonderful find because we have so little information about this era of settlement in the southern provinces,” she told the paper. “We don’t know any such similar complexes for the Old Kingdom.”
There are also indications that Tell Edfu served as a starting location for expeditions into the world beyond Egypt, possibly as far as the Red Sea. They found evidence of this in shells from that region, and fabrics imported from what is now Sudan.
