Fantastic Feasts

6 April 2019 - 23 February 2020 - Chemistry building

Food is an integral part of the way in which we express our cultural values and beliefs. Alongside language, almost nothing says “This is who we are” quite like our festive dishes and food traditions.

Fantastic Feasts explores the many facets of food in the ancient world, examining what the ancient Greeks and Romans actually ate, the connections they believed existed between food and the gods, and the feasting traditions they developed both to bring their communities together and to set them apart.

Dates: Wednesdays through to Sundays, Saturday 6 April 2019 to Sunday 23 February 2020

Times: 11.00am to 3.00pm

Venue: Teece Museum, University of Canterbury Arts City Location, Chemistry building, the Arts Centre, 3 Hereford Street.

Free
