York academics head to Stonehenge to celebrate prehistoric food

Prof Ol Craig and Dr Penny Bickle will be joining English Heritage interpreters at Stonehenge this weekend (1st-2nd Sept.) for the Big Feast—a chance to celebrate all things related to diet in Prehistory.

Stonehenge Visitor Centre is set to be transformed into a Neolithic food festival, providing a delicious opportunity for people to explore and learn about prehistoric food, with historical food interpreters, archaeologists and food producers.

Activities include a Neolithic kitchen and a hands-on shopping experience, live food demos and snappy talks on Stonehenge, food and feasting.

The Feast at Stonehenge weekend is part of the Consuming Prehistory project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, and developed in partnership with Cardiff and York Universities. It complements the Feast! exhibition at Stonehenge which runs until the 16th September.
