Riassunto: A much welcomed synthesis on ancient food production and processing, presenting updated discussions of the kinds of subjects addressed in R. Forbes' Studies in Ancient Technology . Here Curtis draws on archaeological, epigraphic, literary, art historical and scientific evidence in his discussion of the different technologies available to ancient societies, their development and the impact they had on society. This study begins with the Prehistoric period and continues through Egypt and the Near East, the Greek World (from the Bronze Age to the Hellenistic period) to Rome and the Roman Empire. Subjects include milling, butchery, fishing, storage, the processing of cereals, grain, the production of beer, wine, oil, dairy products and so forth. Each chapter has a summary of the major technological innovations of the cultures discussed, providing a rapid overview of the subject.

Sinossi: Employing a wide variety of sources, this book discusses innovations in food processing and preservation from the Palaeolithic period through the late Roman Empire. All through the ages, there has been the need to acquire and maintain a consistent food supply leading to the invention of tools and new technologies to process certain plant and animal foods into different and more usable forms. This handbook presents the results of the most recent investigations, identifies controversies, and points to areas needing further work. It is the first book to focus specifically on ancient food technology, and to discuss the integral role it played in the political, economic, and social fabric of ancient society. Fully documented and lavishly illustrated with numerous photographs and drawings, it will appeal to students and scholars of both the arts and the sciences.
