The 2012 Symposium on Food & Drink in Archaeology comprise an eclectic mix, including Psychoactive consumption in Cypriot Bronze Age mortuary ritual, Food consumption and ritual at the Early Iron Age tholos cemetery of Moni Odigitria, south-central Greece, and Intoxicating drinks and drunkards appearing in ancient Indian art and literature. The book is in academic form; it is copiously illustrated with figures and tables. Great strides have been made in recent decades in the various forms of botanical and physical analysis of archaeological finds which have enabled students to gain greater insight into diet and cooking technologies than was possible when all they had to go on was the survival of artefacts. These papers emanate from the cutting edge of archaeological research, among the postgraduates who will one day make up the teaching force of the world’s universities.
