    That's the same temple where they believe Cleopatra is buried. Mummies with golden tongues never seen such a thing.

    No, it's not a mirage! Archaeologists discover 5,000-year-old BREWERY that could produce more than 4,000 gallons of beer in ancient Egyptian city of Abydos

    Archaeologists have discovered a 5,000-year-old brewery that could produce thousands of litres of beer in the ancient Egyptian city of Abydos. The site, in Egypt's Sohag Governorate, likely dates back to around 3,100 BC, the tourism and antiquities ministry said in a statement on Saturday. Dr Matthew Adams, one of the leaders of the Egyptian-American mission that made the discovery, said they believe the beer was used in royal burial rituals for Egypt's earliest kings. The brewery, which had a production capacity of 22,400 litres, was split into eight sections each containing 40 clay pots used to warm mixtures of grain and water. It is 'believed to be the oldest high-production brewery in the world' the ministry said in its statement.

    The brewery is thought to date back to the reign of King Narmer, who ruled more than 5,000 years ago, founded the First Dynasty and unified Upper and Lower Egypt. British archaeologists first discovered the existence of the brewery at the beginning of the 20th century but had been unable to precisely determine its location, the statement posted to Facebook said. The joint US-Egyptian team 'was able to re-locate and uncover its contents', it added.

    Have you ever heard of people eating mummies as a medicine?

    Yes they sure did , Mummy apothecaries and medicinals were a thing they practiced back in the 1800s. Add some to your tea or eat it off a spoon , it was the fix all to everything. Much desired by the upper social set.

    They also used Mummies as firewood for the Egyptian steam engines back then as they said they made them go faster. "Pass me a king they burn brighter and longer " old Egyptian railways man saying.
