Viking Food Lecture

Nordic Table Lecture - Viking Age Food Culture

Wednesday, June 28, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

In this lecture, a thorough background to the Viking Age Food Culture is given – e.g. ingredients, cooking methods and eating. A closer look upon regional, seasonal and economical differences in preferences at the time will also be investigated. Finally, the lecture will also touch upon some of the myths about food from the period in an attempt to dispel them.

Daniel Serra is a Swedish archaeologist who has been working with ancient food both in theory and practice. Besides working on a Ph.D on the Viking cuisine, he often works with museums and historical events. He is passionate about cooking techniques, culinary practices, and tastes from the Viking to the Renaissance age. Daniel’s 2017 visit to Minnesota is due in part to Midwest Viking Festival in Moorehead, MN.
