Ancient Egyptian Beer Vessels Unearthed in Tel Aviv, Israel

Archaeologists conducting a salvage excavation in downtown Tel Aviv, Israel, have discovered ancient Egyptian beer vessels, the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) recently announced.
The excavation, led by Diego Barkan of the IAA, revealed 17 Early Bronze Age I (c. 3500–3100 B.C.E.) pits, in which were found hundreds of sherds from locally produced pots as well as fragments of large ceramic basins used to prepare beer. These beer vessels were made with straw temper and organic material—a method of manufacture not common in the local production of pottery, but consistent with Egyptian custom. The IAA reports that the beer vessels are similar to those found in an Egyptian administrative building in ‘En Besor in the Negev desert.

Hi Tom,  Joey,  All

I  meant  "blame"  in a   figurative  -  positive -   sense     Cheesy

It's  like   what a  friend  once  replied  when  I mildly  accused  him in jest because he  was  a little drunk after  one too many for  the   road.

He said (in a  broad  Scottish  accent)  "you say that I'm  drunk  as  if  it  was  negative  thing!"

Cheers

Peter

Dear Peter,

    Can't 'blame' it on us!
  Weren't no Jews around before 1850 BCE!   Wink   Grin Roll Eyes

Best to all for 2016!
Shabbat Shalom,
Joey

Peter,  PLEASE get your Biblical history clear!

    NO JEWS, NO ISRAELITES, NO-ONE BEFORE ABRAHAM, WHO LIVED CA. 1850 BCE!
You are talking 1200 years earlier. We are proud to be 3,850 years old as a Nation; but we are not 5,100 years old as a Nation. Sorry.  Roll Eyes   Cheesy

   By the way, we ARE 3,850 years old as a nation, and the Chinese are 'only' 3,500 years old as a nation; that's why we were called 'Wandering' Jews: We were looking for Chinese restaurants for 300 years!   Wink Grin

Best to all,
Shabbat Shalom from cold, rainy Jerusalem Israel, our capital for 3,000+ years (on and off),
Joey

Hi  Joey

OK...  well  Israelites  !

All the  best  for  the  New  Year

Hi  Joey

I  stand  (humbly)  corrected !

So let's  "blame  the   Egyptians  for  the  early  beer  brewing  in the land  of  Israel ! *

Cheers

Peter

* You   say  'blame'   and  'beer'   as  if it's   a  negative  thing !

PS :  I  just finished  reading  the  most  amazing  book:  "T. Rex  and  the  Crater  of  Doom"  by    Walter  Alvarez.    The  subject  matter  is  something  I have  followed  in detail  for  the  past  20 -odd  years : the  great  "KT  extinction"  about  65  million  years  ago   due  to a  Mount  Everest - sized  meteor  which  hit the  gulf  of  Mexico.  Had it  not  been  for that  passing meteor our whole  earth  would  still be   run  by  clod-hopping  dinosaurs (or  whatever  they  evolved  into  -  even  bigger  T  Rexes ? )
And there  would  certainly  be  no  humans  and  CERTAINLY  no   snuff bottles

Dear Peter,
    You'll stand even more humbly corrected, when I remind you it was NOT the land of Israel then; it was Canaan.

    Calling it the land of Israel over 1250 years before Jacob was renamed 'Israel' by G-D, is as anachronistic as if I were to write a history about 'The Peoples' Republic of China in the 16th C.'! 
Roll Eyes   Grin

    And I see no cause to 'blame' anyone for beer production. Thank G-D for beer production thousands of years ago - they had no clean water, and beer was a healthy, easy to produce option. It is over 5,000 years old,  and while not as old as wine (earliest production found is over 8,000 years ago in Georgia, and 7,000 years ago was in Iran, beer and bread enabled early people to store food and energy and develop more advanced civilizations.

   I'm going to get the book you recommended; the book I got the above from is called, "A History of the World in 6 Glasses".

Best Wishes to all,
Shabbat Shalom,
Joey
