The Dining Gaul (and his Phrygian dishes)

Abstract:

Although Ancient authors had little interest in recording the details of daily life of the Gauls, excavation and research has generated a large corpus of relevant data especially from Hellenistic houses (333-189 BCE) at Gordion, an archaeological site in central Turkey.  When considered together, the evidence reveals much about food in its original quotidian context and even more about the residents themselves: what they ate and drank, how it was prepared and served, and how and why these culinary customs changed over time. 

This lecture is brought to you by the Department of Classics at the University of Pittsburgh and the Pittsburgh Chapter of the Archaeological Institute of America.
