"Tudor Kitchens of Hampton Court Palace" at Greenbank Mills

On March 8, 2008 at 10:00 a.m. (US Eastern time) Marc Meltonville and Richard Fitch will present "The Tudor Kitchens of Hampton Court Palace" at Greenbank Mills & Philips Farm in Wilmington, Delaware.

From the program description:

The Tudor Kitchens of Hampton Court Palace are popular with visitors of all ages, but they're more than a tourist attraction. In these reconstructed kitchens, which once occupied 50 rooms of the palace, a team of "experimental archaeologists", directed by J. Marc Meltonville and Richard Fitch, study everyday palace life in Henry VIII's time by cooking, eating, and working with implements and techniques from the 1500s. They even make their own clothes, which they wear both on the job and in their living quarters within the palace.

Non-member cost for the program is $12.
