Add this Event to Calendar 12/12/2022 01:00 PM 12/12/2022 02:00 PM Party Hearty in the Middle Ages

Despite the Middle Ages sometimes being called the Dark Ages, people in that era often enjoyed good times, especially at the table.  Through art and archaeology, learn about medieval foods and their preparation in feasts, as well as the rules and ceremonies under which these sumptuous foods were presented and the types of entertainment guests might enjoy.  Works from the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Met's Cloisters Museum will highlight this talk.  Let the good times roll!

Presenter Michael Norris got his BA in classics from the University of California at San Diego and his MA in classics and Ph.D. in art history at the University of California at Santa Barbara.  He spent twenty years at the Cloisters Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and has lectured on trips all over the world.  

Seating is limited.  Please Register below.
