Summary
The ways of life of four great ancient civilizations--Egyptian, Greek, Roman, and Celtic--are illuminated here through their foodways. As these cultures moved toward settled agriculture, a time of experimentation and learning began. Cities emerged, and with them consumer societies that needed to be supplied. The book draws on writings of classical authors such as Petronius, Galen, and Cato as well as archeological findings to present insight into ancient peoples.--From publisher description
