“The Role of Wine in the Ancient World”, curated by Jared Schutt opens on Wednesday, March 20 at 6:30 p.m. in IC 306. The exhibition will be on view to September 2019.
As part of his coursework for Food and Dining in the Ancient World (CLAS 4V64) Jared Schutt focused on the wine trade of ancient Greece and Rome. His research is now publically accessible in “The Role of Wine in the Ancient World”, an exhibition that illustrates the trade and transport of ancient wine, social drinking rituals and its medical benefits. The exhibition was curated by Jared using 2500 year-old items artifacts from Brock’s Cypriot Museum collection. Jared, who will be starting an MA in Public History at the University of Western Ontario in September, credits the hands-on training on how to design an exhibition and handle ancient artifacts from Profs. K. T. von Stackelberg and Carrie Murray as “a great start to my future.”
