Making medieval meals will be the subject of a talk at Lewes History Group’s next meeting on Monday July 8.

Sussex Archaeological Society education officer Joanna Wilkins will reveal what medieval Lewesians ate and how they prepared and served meals.

Some of our most popular surnames are derived from people whose jobs in medieval times were to make banquets run smoothly: Butlers, Carvers, Pages and Warners.

Joanna will reveal how some of our common expressions have their origins in medieval meal making.

She also looks at the tricks bakers played to save flour and the dangers of fast food outlets.

The venue is King’s Church building, Brooks Rd opposite the Homebase carpark. Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start. There is a charge on the door of £3 for non-members and £2 for members.
