Tel Aviv (AFP) - Fragments of pottery used by Egyptians to make beer and dating back 5,000 years have been discovered on a building site in Tel Aviv, the Israeli Antiquities Authority said on Sunday.

Excavation director Diego Barkan said 17 pits were found that had been used to store produce in the Early Bronze Age, from 3500 to 3000 BC.

"Among the hundreds of pottery sherds that characterise the local culture, a number of fragments of large ceramic basins were discovered that were made in an Egyptian tradition and were used to prepare beer," he said in a statement.

The excavation is the first to offer evidence of an "Egyptian occupation" in the centre of Tel Aviv 5,000 years ago.

"This is also the northernmost evidence we have of an Egyptian presence in the early Bronze Age," he said.

Transfer of technology and very early colonization of the Levant this after all is before or right at dynasty 1, if it goes much beyond that than we are talking of Nekhen or Ta-setian dynast here.

See, we have been drinking beer as a species for five thousand years. That is some good justification information. I wonder if they had cute bartenders back those days.

Its not ancient Egyptian beer making, its "Egypt threatening Israeli territory". Israel will use this as an excuse to bomb Egypt?

The Egyptians back then were great beer drinkers. In fact, it was quite common for workers to receive part of their wages in beer.

The beer of that time was not like the drink we know now, though. It was generally much thicker and a few beers actually constituted a good meal.

There's a fantastic doco on (or was) Netflix called "How Beer Saved the World".
Highly recommended if you like history, beer or a history program while enjoying a beer
