Teachers of Philadelphia: Join us for a guided tour and hands-on workshop. We’ll be touring our special exhibition, Ancient Food & Flavor, to unwrap prehistoric leftovers of food and plant remains that reveal the diets and traditions of communities who lived up to 6,000 years ago. Explore food production, economics, religion, spirituality, class, gender, and community. Examine ancient seeds under a microscope and savor this opportunity to learn more about how food culture helps us understand our identities in the past, present, and future.
