FANTASTIC FEASTS AT THE TEECE MUSEUM

Description

Join us for a guided tour of the best kept secret in Christchurch - the Teece Museum at the Arts Centre. This collection of ancient artefacts will astonish and captivate all history lovers.   The current exhibition “Fantastic Feasts” is all about food and how it is an integral part of the way in which we express our cultural 

values and beliefs. Alongside language, almost nothing says 'This is who we are' quite like our festive dishes and food traditions. A consideration of the foods and 

the traditions we have inherited from the ancient Greeks and Romans is at the 

heart of the exhibition. Through seeing an array of precious artefacts you will explore eating in the ancient world, examining what the Greeks and Romans ate, how they produced and distributed food, the feasting and dining traditions they developed to bring their communities together, and the connections they believed existed between their food sources and the gods.

Please note we will meet at the Teece Museum: Level 1 of the UC Arts City Location (the old Chemistry Building) at 3 Hereford Street, in the historic Christchurch Arts Centre.
