Roman Dining: a Guide to Status and Mores 

This free public talk is part of FESTA 2018 – a public festival of architecture, design & food. Adjunct Associate Professor Robin Bond will explore the ancient contexts for feasting and the influence of food on the development of a society. Using as source material the works of the Roman satirists and their recurrent topic of the 'cena / banquet' as a guide, Professor Bond will investigate social distinctions and mores in Rome in the first century AD. 

Visitors can enjoy the opportunity to browse the Teece Museum’s newest exhibition ‘Beyond the Grave: Death in ancient times’ from 5-6pm, before heading into the Recital Room for Professor Bond’s talk from 6-7pm.
