A Taste of the Ancient World:

A Taste of the Ancient World was designed to form part of the 1996 Fall theme semester on Food at the University of Michigan. This exhibit is the result of cooperation between Michigan undergraduates and the staff of the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology, to whom special thanks are due. Funding for this project was made possible through the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching.

Project Assistant: Melanie D. Grunow

Photography: Nathan J. Garcia

Web Page Design and Production: Clay Blake-Thomas and Melanie D. Grunow
