Researchers working on the site of the ancient town of Lagash in Iraq, which is modern-day al-Hiba, found some interesting items from around 2,700 BCE that shows how complex pre-modern societies were. Archaeologists have found what seems to be a 5,000-year-old “pub” with an “ancient fridge”. They found an ancient tavern buried several inches under the surface, an open-air courtyard and an innovative moisture-wick structure designed to keep food cool, which is being dubbed as a “modern-day fridge”. As part of the Lagash Archaeological Project, deposits of ash and benches were also found. Take a look at these images from the site here.

Final stretch of the 4th season at Lagash. Busy processing finds, photogrammetry, notes, and reports. All of this comes from just one strata in my trench, a floor surface used by pottery crafts-people. #Lagash #LagashArchaeologicalProject pic.twitter.com/A6vUcjrvWM
