Iron Age winter foraging explored

Ian sets about making his menu for the exhibition next week

Iron Age food foraging gets a closer look this weekend at St. Fagans National History Museum. The exhibition held at Wales’ most popular heritage attraction, will demonstrate how Welsh citizens used sustainable foraging methods to preserve and cook in 700 BC. 

St. Fagans’s resident Iron Age expert Ian Daniel explains that the exhibition will show how people used to preserve their food during the colder seasons,  “At this time of year there isn’t much fresh food around so you’d be thinking about preserving meat, fish and cheese using salt, honey and fats.

“We usually do four of these exhibitions a year.” 

One of the dishes on the Iron Age menu next weekend will be pork apple and beer stew cooked in a clay pot.
