At last you get to play with your food! Meet archaeologists and use your observation skills to compare ancient wild plant and animal species to modern ones. Taste, process, and handle new and old world ingredients from favorite foods such as pizza, french fries, and chocolate cake, and learn how they became staples of the American diet we enjoy today. Presented in collaboration with the Cambridge Science Festival.
