What is the real meaning of the phrase “we are what we eat"? Who is the “we” in this statement, what is eaten, and how was this food made? Join us for a 60-minute guided tour, where participants are invited to look under the microscope and discover what ancient food remains can tell us about diets, activities, and what people were eating up to 6,000 years ago. The tour will highlight objects from across Museum galleries, as well as our newest exhibition, Ancient Food & Flavor, and explore food and food production, economics, religion and spirituality, class, gender, and community. Learning about food culture helps us understand our identities in the past, present, and future. Join us to discover how!
