Ancient diet at the Acropolis Museum

Saturday, 24 January, 2015

What did the ancient Athenians eat and drink? What were their local products and what products did they import into their markets? How and where was their food produced? What was the relationship between food and worship in ancient Athens? Visitors will explore all the above issues and current methods of investigating ancient diet, among the exhibits which reflect it.

The gallery talk 'Ancient diet at the Acropolis Museum' is part of the program Alternating Gallery Talks of the Acropolis Museum.
