To identify the age of the wine residue researchers used radiocarbon dating, which has a significant finding of European prehistory. There is still a lot of questions of what impact the consumption of alcohol had on societal changes.

Archaeologist believe that the tomb of Herod the Great discovered in 2007 is likely not the real resting place of the king. The original tomb thought to be King Herod is smaller than other royal tombs of the Hasmoneans. The size of the tomb along with no respectable gateway gives suggestion that it is not belong to Herod the Great.

Intact Etruscan tomb unearthed in Tarquinia

Intact Etruscan tomb unearthed in Tarquinia | Ancient china | Scoop.it

The skeletonized body of an Etruscan prince, possibly a relative to Tarquinius Priscus, the legendary fifth king of Rome from 616 to 579 B.C., has been brought to light in an extraordinary finding that promises to reveal new insights on one of the ancient world’s most fascinating cultures.
Found in Tarquinia, a hill town about 50 miles northwest of Rome, famous for its Etruscan art treasures, the 2,600 year old intact burial site came complete with a full array of precious grave goods.

“It’s a unique discovery, as it is extremely rare to find an inviolate Etruscan tomb of an upper-class individual. It opens up huge study opportunities on the Etruscans,” Alessandro Mandolesi, of the University of Turin, told Discovery News. Mandolesi is leading the excavation in collaboration with the Archaeological Superintendency of Southern Etruria. [...]

As the heavy stone slab was removed, Mandolesi and his team were left breathless. In the small vaulted chamber, the complete skeleton of an individual was resting on a stone bed on the left. A spear lay along the body, while fibulae, or brooches, on the chest indicated that the individual, a man, was probably once dressed with a mantle.
At his feet stood a large bronze basin and a dish with food remains, while the stone table on the right might have contained the incinerated remains of another individual.

Decorated with a red strip, the upper part of the wall featured, along with several nails, a small hanging vase, which might have contained some ointment. A number of grave goods, which included large Greek Corinthian vases and precious ornaments, lay on the floor. [...]
