5,200 Year-Old Take-Out Windows?

And now for something completely different: Did the Early Bronze Age Invent the Drive-Through Carry-Out Window?

That would seem to be the take-away (sorry, couldn't help it!) from "Beer and Bullets to Go: Ancient 'Takeout' Window Discovered."  (No, they haven't discovered bronze age "bullets" in the modern sense: they mean clay pellets for slings.) A tip of the hat to Diana Buja for the link.
