WWI liquor bottles

Archaeologists who were digging up 250,000-year-old flint tools in Ramle, Israel, came across something unexpected – hundreds of liquor bottles left behind by soldiers during the first World War.

According to the Israel Antiquities Authority, the bottles of gin, whiskey, and wine were believed to be abandoned by members of the Egyptian Expeditionary Force, British troops led by General Edmund Allenby, in 1917.

Officials said the area where the bottles were found was near a building where soldiers were garrisoned during World War I. Archaeologists also found buttons and belt buckles that once belonged to the soldiers.

Excavation director Ron Toueg said the discovery gave a glimpse into “the everyday life and leisure of the soldiers.”
