VIRTUAL - Archaeology of Beer

October 19, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm CDT

This is an online event.

It’s been found in the Egyptian pyramids, the cities of Mesopotamia, Viking longboats, the palace of Machu Picchu, medieval monasteries, and the world’s earliest farming villages. What is it? Beer! Beer has been used for thousands of years to pay taxes, heal the sick, and accompany the dead into the afterlife. Many religions worshiped gods and goddesses of beer and brewing, and some of the earliest known examples of both poetry and law codes are about beer. Join us for an evening webinar exploring the archaeology of beer with Public Archaeologist Patty Hamrick.
