Party Hearty In The Middle Ages – Virtual Art Lecture
November 14, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Despite the Middle Ages still 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—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.
Presented by Dr. Michael Norris (Armchair Art Tours).
