Ancient Roman fish sauce workshops found in Portugal

(ORDO NEWS) — Scientists from the University of Cadiz made an unexpected discovery on the territory of modern Portugal, where the ancient Roman city used to be located.

Old garum factories have been discovered there. This is a fish sauce that was used in ancient Roman cuisine. The buildings date back to the 1st-2nd centuries AD. In ancient times, the plant also produced a variety of pastes.

According to researchers, the factories where garum was produced were located in the immediate vicinity of the ancient Roman villa, where the owners probably lived. The house itself was abandoned around the 4th century AD. However, the sauce was produced at the factory for at least another century.
