ArchaeoCon 2023 to Include Culinary Workshop on Roman Globi

ArchaeoCon 2023 is coming up on March 11! If you haven’t already, be sure to buy your ArchaeoCon ticket now.

This year’s day of festivities will include a workshop that gives you the opportunity to explore the past in a tangible and edible format. Join Rosalva Parada for an on demand culinary demonstration. While we made this year’s workshop on demand so that you can move at your own pace, we recommend heading to your kitchen after Mike Parker Pearson kicks off ArchaeoCon with his live Stonehenge presentation from 1-2pm Eastern because at 3:30 Eastern, workshop host Rosalva Parada will be on live to answer any questions you might have!
