Archaeological team finds food stalls including wine in Pompeii

According to vinepair, an archaeological team recently discovered an unusually well-preserved snack stand decorated with brightly colored frescoes in the ancient city of Pompeii, Italy. The snack stand dates back to 79 A.D., when it was buried by a nearby volcanic eruption.

The team also found fragments of duck bones and the remains of pigs, sheep, fish and snails in the clay jars, and crushed fava beans used to adjust the taste of wine in the bottom of the jars. At that time, many ingredients were cooked together, and it can be said to be an assorted meal of the Roman era. The frescoes are painted with pictures of chickens and ducks and other animals, and experts speculate that they were menu items offered at the food stalls.
