Did the Iron Age Brits have beans?
I would willingly nip up to this event in Cirencester and find out:Iron Age and Roman Food in Britain
Thursday 7 May, 2.30-3.30pm
Lisa will explore
how plant remains
are recovered from archaeological sites,
and how these can tell us about the crops, fruits and flavourings used in Iron Age and Roman Britain. Tour the galleries with Lisa to identify plant foods on display.
Cost: £6 or £5 for season ticket holders
Booking essentialhttp://coriniummuseum.org/2015/04/16/fo ... thought-2/
Except it's on a Thursday afternoon, which is no good to any of us idiots still cursed by a Fulltime Day Job.
What kind of people do they expect to get at these events?
They are also organising a few other savoury events, like this:Toilets, sewers and cess pits: the other side of the food story
Monday 25 May, 11-12pm
What happens to
food after it is eaten? How does it become archaeology? This talk will use the displays to think about the other side of the food story and to explore what going to the toilet can tell us about people in the past.

But the event that might be the most appropriate for all our TME experts on elevated micturition in a beverage-production facility is this one:Bacchus in Britain and Beyond
