4,000-year-old skeleton still clutching beer mug

The Daily Mail found the perfect headline for a story after construction workers uncovered a skeleton that archaeologists believe is 4,000 years old and holding a type of beer mug: “At least he died happy.”

Marion Green, of the Canterbury Archaeological Trust, said that the find last week was one of the best preserved Bronze Age skeletons she had ever seen.

She added: “It is a beautifully decorated pot which could have been used as a type of beer mug.”

Here are the photos.

  1. I bet he didn’t die happy, he probably died waiting to get served, just like in my local. Things haven’t changed.

  2. That’s interesting. I’d like to see the mug. (no pun intended) LMAO @ Jeff. Dear Jeff, I think it’s about time you found a new place to hang at or BYOB.
