VIRTUAL  Party Hearty in the Middle Ages

VIRTUAL Party Hearty in the Middle Ages

Despite the Middle Ages still sometimes being called the Dark Ages, people then 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 the Zoom talk.

This slide lecture is presented by Michael Norris, Ph.D., who spent twenty years as an educator at the Cloisters Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.  He has lectured on trips all over the world, especially in classical and medieval art, the areas of his expertise.

Registrants will be emailed the Zoom link the day before the event.

This program is sponsored by The Friends of the Livingston Public Library.
