With research spanning from 1978, this volume examines the primary evidence of plant and animal sources in the diet, cookware, and the state of nutrition based on human skeletal and dental remains. It is a specialized survey of the current status of the multidisciplinary investigation of farming, diet, and nutrition in the ancient Greek colony of Metaponto (southern Italy) and its chora, or territory. Chapters include: paleobotanical research, faunal analysis, kitchen archaeological artifacts, anatomical clues to nutrition. An afterword contains recreations of ancient meals and music.
