Curtis Runnels, an archaeologist at Boston University, called the finding significant not only in showing the sophistication of the wine, but also in suggesting that it was meant specifically for palace use. He noted that the chemical analysis showed each jar held wine from the same recipe, showing the “consistency and control you’d expect in a palace.”
Friends of ASOR present “Ask an Archaeologist,” a brand new YouTube series dedicated to finding out what you and your students want to know about Archaeology. The series is based on questions submitted by viewers. Viewer’s questions will be answered by professional archaeologists with years of experience.
“Ask An Archaeologist” provides reliable, entertaining and educational information about Archaeology in video form. It is also a opportunity to connect students with professional archaeologists around the world.
We are currently, and always, accepting questions. This could be used as a group or individual activity challenging students to create interesting questions, answered by real archaeologists, and viewed by thousands of people around the world.
