Hear from archaeologist Bettina Arnold how artifacts found at burial sites, and residue scraped from inside a 2,500-year-old bronze cauldron, shed light on feasting and power-drinking in pre-Roman Europe. Then join certified beer expert Mark Mark Keene to taste brews inspired by ancient ingredients at an outdoor reception. This includes a malt-and-honey beverage based on the cauldron's contents, using a recipe crafted with high-tech analysis, a savvy paleobotanist, and enthusiastic brewmasters.
