Food and drink in middling households in the 16th and 17th centuries

May 26 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

A new talk series about food history with Mark Dawson – Talk 2

The 16th and 17th centuries were a time of major changes: social and economic as well as political and religious. The lives of the rich and powerful are often front of stage in the history of these centuries, but what about those further down the social scale? This talk looks at changing patterns of food production and consumption in households of people of moderate means (small farmers and artisans) and sees how wider changes impacted the most fundamental aspect of their daily lives.

Members of Heritage Lincolnshire benefit from a reduced ticket price of £5, Non-members £7 and tickets can be bought in our shop. Why don’t you take advantage of ticket discounts and become a member
