The November 13 lecture will examine wide array of beverages from the Neolithic Period to the present. An outline of the history of beer (Egypt), wine (Greece), coffee (Africa), and tea (India/China) will be traced, and their respective impact on their countries of origin will be detailed in color illustrations. The dietary and health aspects of these beverages will be considered, as well how these drinks were celebrated in the arts.
