Food to go at the foot of Mt Vesuvius

So often when studying the food of the past, a great deal of attention is paid to what the elites ate, particularly when it comes to Ancient Rome. The food of wealthy Romans is well documented, and we even have numerous recipe books from the period to better inform our understanding of Roman cuisine.




Exploring History is a publication about history. Instead of focusing on any particular time period of history, we explore anything about the past that helps our readers understand the world they live in today. We pay special attention to historiographical rigor and balance.
