In this talk, we’ll journey into the rich culinary history of the Moche people, who thrived along the desertic northern Peruvian coast from AD 100-800. This story is not just about what was on the plate; it’s about what the archaeology of meals can tell us about the lives, struggles, and joys of two very different parts of Moche society. By exploring both a grand feast preparation area and a humble commoner’s home, we’ll dig into what food reveals about wealth, status, and daily life during a turbulent time marked by drought and political tension.
