Description

Everybody eats. Food and food-ways, like clothing, tools, arms and armor, are elements of medieval culture that excite interest from outside, draw new scholars to and strengthen disciplines in the field. In this session, Mens et Mensa and MAM present papers and a demonstration that explore using medieval food and diet, and their representation in contemporary popular culture, in the classroom and out, to increase interest in the field, as well as how the examination of medieval food-ways deepens our understanding of the period.
