EventKeeper : Tell a Friend
Party Hearty in the Middle Ages Virtual Art History with Michael Norris

Wednesday May 19, 2021
10:30 AM


Despite the Middle Ages being occasionally referred to as 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-including a recipe for roast unicorn!--in late-medieval 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. 

Michael Norris of Armchair Art Tours received his BA in classics from the University of California at San Diego and his MA in classics and PhD 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.
