After traces of 13,000-year-old beer production were discovered in Israel, the presence of wine has been discovered in China. National archaeologists have discovered a grave in Henan Province (east-central China) that housed a 2000-year-old bronze container, which still has liquid inside, the New China Agency said on Tuesday. Henan Province is known as the cradle of Chinese civilization.
The liquid, which is yellow in color, has been identified as wine and is currently being tested in the laboratory for alcohol content. The container still had 3.5 liters of the drink inside and we can only be surprised by its amazing preservation! The agency did not specify how the container was closed ... The drink is estimated to be from the Western Han Dynasty (202 BC to 8 AD).
