It’s giveaway and workshop time! Registration link is below.
Join award-winning experimental archaeologist, Farrell Monaco, for a FREE 1 1/2 hour presentation and workshop on bread and bread-making in ancient Rome. Farrell will discuss the archaeology of bread in ancient Rome, sources of evidence, methods of manufacture, form, function and symbolism. Following the introductory presentation, participants will work with Farrell to make their own Panis Quadratus loaves based on her recent research conducted at Pompeii, Italy, which will be detailed fully in her forthcoming publication on the subject. Registrants will also be entered to win a custom Panis Quadratus wheel press and a Pompeian linen bread bag, made by My Bukuro.Emails will go out to registrants the week prior to the workshop with the link to the Zoom room and instructions on what to prepare prior to the session. The workshop will cover the history and archaeology of bread-making and bakeries in Rome, and some of the various theories (old and new) related to the manufacture of the iconic Panis Quadratus… and then we’ll make one ourselves! The winner of the giveaway will also be announced in the workshop.
The live Panis Quadratus lecture and bread-making workshop through Excellence Through Classics on May 5th was packed to the internet rafters and was a smashing success! Thanks to all who attended! I understand that some people missed the May 5th workshop, however, as the Zoom room was changed at the last minute by the organizer to accommodate the higher number of participants. Fear not, pistores! I’ve got you covered, as always.
I am launching a second Zoom workshop on June 6th at 12 noon PST… And it’s FREE! Your registration for the workshop also enters you to win one of my custom-designed Panis Quadratus wheel presses and a large Pompeian linen bread bag, made by My Bukuro, to store your Panis Quadratus loaf in after baking!

Let’s cook it old school!
Your article in National Geographic got me hooked! I am looking forward to learning more about Roman cooking and trying out some of your recipes. Thanks!
You are so welcome!! – Farrell
Thansks for an exhilarating and mind-boggling initiative! Would so much have liked to partake of the class, but realized you were there too late. Any chance you recorded it? And/or will do it again? Would be so interesting!
Looking forward to hearing from you,
Documentary film maker,
