Oysters treat of Elizabethan theater-goers

Archaeologists studying the sites of Elizabethan playhouses in London have discovered that theatre-goers were treated to an "exotic array of foods while enjoying the latest plays of the day."

Oysters and other shellfish were favorite snacks as well as dried raisins, figs, hazelnuts, plums, cherries and peache. Pies and sturgeon were also popular.
