You Are What You Ate: Food lessons from the past! Come over to the dark side

This spring brings with it a series of free public talks based on this year’s project theme of ‘the dark side of eating’, with topics ranging from the history of drink through to using archaeology to find out more about diet and lifestyle.

Join us on Wednesday 21 March from 6.30pm at Pontefract Library (Shoemarket, Pontefract, WF8 1BD) to hear Dr Alan Ogden (Archaeological Sciences, University of Bradford) speak on ‘The dark side of diet: what skeletons can tell us about food in the past’. The talk will be followed with a wine reception and a chance to see this year’s ‘Dark Side of Eating’ exhibition at Pontefract Museum. Entry is free and there is no need to book. Fo rmore information on our talks and ‘The Dark Side of Eating’ exhibition, take a look at our website:

You Are What You Ate is a three year project funded by the Wellcome Trust, in partnership with the University of Leeds, Wakefield Council and the University of Bradford.
