This major collaborative project works with archaeologists at the University of Bradford, food scientists and the University of Leeds and the non-academic partner Wakefield Council to explore food in the past and how the history of food and eating can bring about a fuller understanding of modern nutrition. The project involves school activities, cooking demonstrations, bone workshops and exhibitions.
