The Origins of Beer

On Thursday, Nov 5, the New York Times News Service reported that archaeologists have found the earliest chemical evidence for beer. "It's chemical substantiation of what were archaeological arguments before," Dr. Patrick E. McGovern, an archaeological chemist at the University Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania, said in an interview Wednesday.

Asked the meaning of finding both the earliest known wine and beer in the same room, McGovern replied, "I think a lot of serious drinking was going on there."
