From April 28 to September 2, 2018, the Celtic Museum Hochdorf / Enz is holding a special exhibition about Nutrition among the Celts called ‘Between Kettles and Cooking Spits’.
If you believe Greek historians, then you would think that lavish feasts in the life of the Celts were the order of the day two thousand years ago. Even if only a few of these descriptions have been handed down, our image of ever-celebrating and miserable barbarians have left their mark on us to this day.
Today, however, modern research allows much deeper insights into the livelihoods of the Celtic population. The exhibition shows the methods used by archaeobotanists and archaeozoologists and the astonishing insights they gain from the analysis of minute plant particles, pollen and bone material.
Their investigations lead us right into the Celtic everyday life, on fields and pastures and to the cooking pots. The Celts’ Nutrition Exhibition was developed by the Museum Team of Celtic World Glauberg and presented there in 2017 under the title “Meal – Nutrition by the Celts”.
