He stated that the factory is located in the area of King Narmer, known for the unification of ancient Egypt in the early dynasty (3150 BCE to 2613 BCE). Waziri said that archaeologists have found eight units. Each unit is 20 meters (about 65 feet) long, 2.5 meters (about eight feet) wide. About 40 earthen pots have been found in these, which would be useful in heating the mixture of grains and water for the production of beer.
The joint expedition was co-chaired by Matthew Adams of the Institute of Fine Arts at New York University, and Deborah Vischak, Assistant Professor of Ancient Egypt History and Archeology at Princeton University. Adams said that this factory must have been established in this area to carry out the royal rituals of beer. He said that archaeologists have found evidence that shows the use of beer during sacrificial practices in ancient Egypt.
The Ministry of Antiquities said that the British archaeologists first mentioned the existence of this factory in the early 1900s, but they could not know where it exists.
