Tomb of Ancient Egyptian Beer Brewer is Opened by Archaeologists for the First Time in 3,200 Years


The tomb of Khonso Em Heb, who lived 3,200 years ago, was discovered by a Japanese team and has been described as ‘one of the most important discoveries’ made at the Thebes necropolic site in the city of Luxor.

Egypt’s antiquities minister Mohamed Ibrahim described Khonso Em Heb as the chief ‘maker of beer for gods of the dead’ who was also the head of a warehouse.

He added that the walls of the tomb’s chambers contain ‘fabulous designs and colors, reflecting details of daily life… along with their religious rituals’.
