BROKEN PIECES STILL TELL A STORY

Did you know that of all the artifacts discovered in archeology pottery is what tells us the most about the daily life of our ancestors?

Here are broken jugs found in the living quarters of the pyramid builder, next to the Pyramids. They were used by the workers to hold their beer.

Beer was the prefered drink of Ancient Egyptians. It was consumed by all,  pharaohs as well as  ordinary people. But the Egyptians did not invent beer but learned the art of brewing from the Sumerians  (4000 B.C. ) the worlds first known brewers.

Personally I am grateful to whoever invented beer, because it is my prefered drink too – maybe that’s because I am German?

More from Egypt soon
