Beer update

Bronze Age burial 'with beer mug'
The skeleton was "crouched" which was typical of the time
A 4,000-year-old Bronze Age skeleton has been unearthed by archaeologists working on a site in east Kent.

Canterbury Archaeological Trust said the curled-up skeleton was an example of a "Beaker" burial because of the pottery vessel placed at its feet.

Education officer Marion Green said the "beautifully decorated" pot could have been "a type of beer mug".

They have a photo of the skeleton but you can't see the mug.
