Ancient Beer, Wine Jars Found in Egypt

Archaeologists digging in a 5,000-year-old site in southern Egypt have unearthed 200 rough ceramic beer and wine jars and a second mud-brick mortuary enclosure of King Hur-Aha the founder of the First Dynasty, Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities said Wednesday.

A joint American excavation mission from Yale University, Institute of Fine Arts, the Pennsylvania University Museum and New York Universities found the treasure Wednesday at Shunet El-Zebib, north of Abydos in the Upper Egyptian city of Sohag.

This is similar to what happened in Turkey.
When they were excavating the ruins at efesis (where St Peter was alledgedly emprisoned for seven years) in Turkey they uncovered some ceramic beer bottles.
The local beer, Efes Pils (i have seen it here in Dan Murphys) is packaged in a bottle that is a replication of the 2000 year old ceramic bottles.

Interesting on its own and kind of similar to the above egyptian bottles.
