Beer Cap Found Embedded in Archeological Excavation


The cap for a bottle of Tuborg beer was discovered in a archeological excavation conducted by Haifa University. On Wednesday archaeologists from the Institute of Archaeology at the University of Haifa announcement they found the contemporary item discarded inside ancient stone architecture.  It was discovered in Hippos, a Roman city that once existed near the Sea of Galilee. It was known in Aramaic and Hebrew as Sussita. Archeologists are not sure how the beer cap ended up in what ostensibly was a sealed location for the past 2,000 years. They believe the beer cap possibly floated into the ruins of a drainage canal during a period when water still flowed. Tuborg is a common brand of beer distributed in Israel. Photos of the beer cap and the ancient stones can be seen on Arutz Sheva's Hebrew language news service by clicking here.
