Discovering the world's oldest wine cellar

Andrew Koh, associate professor of classical studies, was part of a team that unearthed the oldest — and largest — palatial wine cellar in the Near East last year. The researchers  reported this week in PloS ONE that their analysis confirmed that the vessels did contain wine. These findings attracted the media's attention. The following is a brief sampling of the coverage.
