The substance found by archaeologists in the ancient Egyptian tomb turned out to be one of the oldest cheeses ever discovered. This is reported by the BBC.
"Archaeologists have discovered a" hardened whitish mass "in one of the cans, which they thought was food, but it was not clear which one. Now the study determined that this is cheese made 3,200 years ago, "the report said.
It is assumed that the cheese had an "specific" taste.
Also, the researchers say they also found traces of a bacterium that can cause an infectious disease known as brucellosis, which comes from consuming unpasteurised dairy products.
The tomb where the cheese was found belonged to Ptahmes, an Egyptian official who was the mayor of the ancient city of Memphis.
Last month in Egypt, found an ancient mummification room near the famous pyramids in Giza.
