Added January program
Dec 30, 2004 15:55 PST
Dear Culinary Historians:
On Saturday, January 29th, we’re adding an additional program to the
winter schedule. Marc Meltonville and Richard Fitch will present
“Reconstructing the Kitchens of Hampton Court Palace: Experimenting with
a Tudor Kitchen.”
This is an illustrated talk on the experimental archaeology project that
has become the historic kitchens of Hampton Court Palace, looking at
their original usage as the kitchens of Henry VIII and their subsequent
two hundred years of Royal occupation. They will look at the many
aspects of research and reconstruction needed to complete this sort of
'living' display and examine the way in which this type of project can
link "academic research" with "popular history"
Meltonville and Fitch are on staff at Hampton Court Palace, Henry VIII’s
palace on the Thames.

An article about Meltonville and Fitch by Charles Perry is available at
The program will be in the Central Library Auditorium at 10:30.
