The story of chocolate
UCL Institute of Archaeology
31–34 Gordon Square | London | WC1 | United Kingdom
Dr Kathryn Sampeck, Associate Professor of Anthropology, Illinois State University
These days, chocolate is a fairly unremarkable part of our daily lives. We have many ideas that we associate with it - what color it is, how it should taste, what kinds of foods it should be part of. All of these qualities seem natural, unremarkable. Little would you suspect that chocolate has a colonial past that involved some of the greatest horrors of colonialism in Spanish America, all because of very different ideas and uses in the past.
Dr Kathryn Sampeck will present a lecture on the bittersweet story of chocolate.
