Israeli archaeologists discover Egyptian beer vessels in Tel Aviv.
Text size Aa Aa

Israeli archaeologists have unearthed ancient Egyptian beer vessels in Tel Aviv.

The fragments of brewing basins indicate that Egyptians more than 5,000 years ago had settled farther north than previously thought.

The ceramics would have held a thick, partially backed barley and water mixture left to ferment in the sun.

The shards were found under an office construction site in Tel Aviv in 17 pits used to store agricultural produce in the Early Bronze Age.
