MUSEUM NEWS AND EVENTS

Now Open: FANTASTIC FEASTS!

Food is an integral part of the way in which we express our cultural values and beliefs. Alongside language, almost nothing says 'This is who we are' quite like our festive dishes and food traditions. A consideration of the foods and the traditions we have inherited from the ancient Greeks and Romans is at the heart of the next exhibition at the Teece Museum.

Through an array of precious artefacts this exhibition will explore eating in the ancient world, examining what the Greeks and Romans ate, how they produced and distributed food, the feasting and dining traditions they developed to bring their communities together, and the connections they believed existed between their food sources and the gods.

When: Open 6 April 2019 to 23 February 2020
Where: Teece Museum, UC Arts city location, 3 Hereford Street.
