25 April - 5 July This exciting exhibition is a partnership between the British Museum, Roman archaeologists from UK Universities and the Corinium Museum. It will explore food in Roman Britain and the wider Roman world and bring together unique objects from Cirencester as well as from Silchester and across the Roman Empire including Pompeii, Rome, Athens and Tunisia. Drawing on recent research, this exhibition will expose all there is to know about Roman food. It will show the utensils used in the Roman world, how people prepared their food, and what evidence we have for these practices, including food remains from a sewer in Herculaneum. The exhibition will also showcase artist Miranda Creswell's 'Chop Marks'; landscape drawings made with graphite on kitchen chopping boards. Free Admission
