The papers given at this conference range over many historic and prehistoric periods as well as continents and regions. 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.
