Ancient people of Paphos enjoyed a pint
Archaeologists excavating at a dig in Paphos have discovered what they believe to be ancient brewery, reinforcing the belief that people in the area were drinking beer over three thousand years ago.
The latest findings, however, appear to back up their theory that the ancient people of Paphos produced and drank bear. An announcement by Cyprus’ Antiquities Department says the team’s discovery was made in an area that is of “particular archaeological significance”.
The archaeological team claims that it has uncovered the remains of an industrial site which includes areas used for processing grains and for brewing.
