Ancient Egypt last discovery: a brewery. Because not only we love beer today. It seems that thousands of years ago, beer was very popular too.
Japanese archaeologists discovered in Luxor, in southern Egypt, the tomb of the owner of a brewery dated between 13th or 11th centuries BC.
Egyptian Minister of Antiquities Mohamed Ibrahim said that the tomb has really beautiful frescoes, which show important details of everyday life of the owner of the brewery, identified as Im-Heb Junsu and his family. His wife was Mut Hob Om, and Eis At Ja was his daughter. They appeared on the walls singing and dancing in different celebrations.
Also, the Egyptian minister said that the murals show many aspects of the relationship between husband, wife and children in ancient Egypt, and about their religious practices. In fact, the brewery was dedicated to the goddess Mut.
The ceiling of the tomb also features beautiful drawings and a painting of the sunset.
Mohamed Ibrahim announced that they plan to exhibit the tomb to the public in the future .
