On Wednesday 16 October 2019, at 2:00pm, at Beeston library James Wright will use medieval house accounts to show what grew on the estates and how retinues of people could be fed, describing kitchens at sites including Tattershall Castle, Rufford Abbey and Doddington Hall. How did the food get from kitchen to dining hall, and was it stone cold?
James Wright is the heritage expert behind our recent project “Home Cooked Heritage” and his background as a Buildings Archaeologist makes him ideally suited to reveal how food was prepared and served in earlier times.
