2,000 year-old fast-food joint discovered opens to public

Post by oneh2obabe »

Another secret revealed at the Pompeii archaeological site ... how many more will be discovered?
A 2,000-year-old fast-food and drink counter, which was excavated last year in the streets of the ancient Roman city Pompeii, will open to the public this summer.

The Telegraph reported that the opening date is set for August 12 for the "thermopolium," which is Latin for "hot-drink counter."

The counter and surrounding area was discovered in the archaeological park's Regio V site. It had once offered its Roman customers culinary treats including pork, fish, snails, and beef, traces of which were found at the site, Insider's previously Sophia Ankel reported.

Duck bone fragments were also found, as well as crushed fava beans, which were used to modify the taste of wine.

Whew, just in the nick of time, those chicken nuggets were set to expire :biggrin:

Love archeology. I have a few ancient coins. Its remarkable to think that someone who was given a coin 2000 years ago for a wage or payment for goods is now in my hand. Who knows, maybe Jesus even held on to one of them.

Oh, to build a time machine and experience history beyond the realms of a book


Mind you, the first stop would be 1980, opening night of "The Empire Strikes Back" and then at the right moment, yell out "Spoiler Alert! He's his daddy!" [icon_lol2.gif]
