Food and Drink in Archaeology 2009 – Nottingham

July 22, 2008

Archaeology has a long tradition of food and drink studies. Originally concerned with nutrition and later with economics, archaeologists now recognise that research into the production, distribution and consumption of foodstuffs has the potential to reveal much about the ideology and structure of past societies. Food and drink are relevant to all areas of archaeology, regardless of geography, temporality or sub-discipline. Our conference series seeks, therefore, to unite researchers from different fields through a common interest in foodways.

The third annual Food and Drink conference will be held at the University of Nottingham on the 17 and 18 April 2009.


For the 2009 conference we are inviting established and early-career academics, as well as postgraduate students, to submit proposals for sessions, papers and posters on any topic or theme.  We are particularly keen to attract speakers who have adopted multi/inter-disciplinary approaches.


If you are interested in proposing a session, paper or poster, please contact Naomi Sykes or Claire Newton for further details.
