The place of food and wine in the collections of RMAH
Thursday 9 & Saturday 11 February, 2023
The permanent collections of the RMAH are full of historical and archaeological riches that allow us to understand the wine-making, food, and gastronomic traditions in Western Europe. Ceramics, glassware, tapestries, goldsmithing, as well as amphorae and cups, … make it possible to trace table rites, methods of preparation and consumption, and the issues and myths that make food so societal. We will revisit the permanent collections from this new perspective: Greek and Roman antiquity, national archaeology, Gallo-Roman, Merovingian, medieval and Baroque periods.
