A US-Italian archaeologists team made the discovery in the ancient Lagash ruins, northeast of the contemporary city of Nasiriyah, one of the earliest urban centers of the Sumerian civilization of ancient Iraq. The researchers found an open courtyard that was used for dining, along with benches, an oven, ancient food relics, and a 5,000-year-old moisture-wick structure that can be compared to a ‘modern-day fridge’ to keep the food cool and conical bowls with fish remnants.
