Archaeologists In Ancient City Of Pompeii Dig Up Roman Food Counter

LEILA FADEL, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Leila Fadel. The ancient Romans may not have had McDonald's or Burger King, but that doesn't mean they didn't have fast food. Archaeologists in Pompeii have dug up a 2,000-year-old hot food and drink shop, the first of its kind ever discovered in the city's ruins - think a New York City street vendor but with more varied offerings. Researchers found traces of goat, duck, pig and even snails. Making you hungry? It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
