Egypt's minister of antiquities says Japanese archeologists have unearthed the tomb of an ancient beer brewer in the city of Luxor that is more than 3,000 years old. 


JERRY KITH's curator insight, February 1, 2014 1:39 AM

An intersting article on Ancient Egyptian beer brewer. I wonder if some local brewery will take notice and use this ancient recipe to produce beer. I think the  next big hype is for local artisans to recreate ancient food/drinks..

A Celtic treasure looted by the Vikings more than 1,000 years ago has been discovered in the British Museum's storerooms. An ornate, gilded disc brooch dating from the eighth or ninth century was found by chance and is being described as a "staggering find". No-one knew of its existence until now.
