Food and Drink in Antiquity End-of-Semester Banquet

Students in ARCH 492: Food and Drink in Antiquity celebrated the end of the semester with a banquet of food prepared using ancient recipes. Highlights included stew, various dishes cooked in fish sauce, and a number of delicious desserts.  After students talked about the dishes they had researched and prepared, we watched the incredible banquet scene in Fellini's Satyricon.  Two students also gave their semester project presentations; Abigail D., who made a limestone mortar, is featured below.

A toast to archaeology!
