With Simon Spalding, Musical Historian and Maritime History Educator. Visitor Center Auditorium, 18751 Hogaboom Lane, St. Mary’s City, MD 20686. Starting with the archaeological evidence of ancient Mediterranean shipwrecks, Simon traces the development of shipboard cuisine up to the fighting and trading fleets of England, Spain, and Portugal in the 16th and early 17th centuries. This culinary sea voyage is full of surprising details, from the challenges faced by early medieval Scandinavians, to the differences in maritime culinary practice between Mediterranean and Northern waters. Learn how the Spanish Armada was hobbled by problems of food storage, and how foodstuffs and food preparation varied between the English and Iberian fleets in 1588. Using primary sources, Mr. Spalding will explore not only food, but many aspects of shipboard routine aboard English ships in the early 17th century. The program is illustrated with examples of poetry and song. Free. (240) 895-4990 or info@HSMCdigshistory.org. www.HSMCdigshistory.org.
