Course Description: This course offers a study of the production and consumption of food and beverages in ancient Egypt and the Roman Empire. This topic is connected with many areas of cultural practice, including economy and trade, religion, and magic and medicine, both conceptually and practically. Knowledge of food production and consumption during ancient times is derived from different sources and methods, including economic archeology, archaeobotany, archeozoology, and in the case of Egypt, papyrology. The course examines historical characteristics of the production of essential components of the diet, such as wheat, oil, beer, wine, fish, meat, vegetables, legumes, herbs, spices, and their use in everyday life, in the festival context, in medical diet, and in the magic rituals of the Roman Empire and ancient Egypt.
