The Archaeology of Alcohol and Drinking (The American Experience in Archaeological Perspective) (The W at Amazon)

I post this here mostly so I can remember that I wanted to read it later, but also because I thought it was interesting enough that someone else might be interested.

It is a book detailing archaeological evidence of alcohol, drinking, and what it can tell us. Personally this is the sort of archaeology that I find the most facinating ("did someone say nutritional anthropologist?") because food and beverage are such a part of human life.

That's indeed an interesting topic. I was first introduced to it during a course on ancient Greek warfare, when we discussed the possible role of binge drinking session on Alexander the Great's military campaigns.

Then, a history podcast I listen to had an episode on the topic. Here is a link for anybody interested. It is show #20, titled "Under the Influence". It is mostly focused on Alexander, Churchill, and JFK.

Lloyd: When I met Mary, I got that old fashioned romantic feeling, where I'd do anything to bone her.
Harry: That's a special feeling.
