Garum factory found

If you're like me, you've been thinking about garum a lot in the last few weeks. I came across this article today about a small factory that was found in Israel:

Thank you very much. I read the article with great interest!

“It’s hard for us to imagine,” Tali Erickson-Gini of the Israel Antiquities Authority said. “It [garum] was far more common than ketchup.”

There's an excellent article also about Rome's principal maritime harbor (Portus).

I now turn to another important topic:

Really interesting, thanks. One wonders if it made kosher garum? Or non-kosher. or both?
