What did ancient Egyptians eat?
Wheat and barley were the most important crops and were grown to make the staples of bread and beer. In this first wall painting, you can see cereals being collected as taxes by officials on behalf of the pharaoh.
Farmers grew other crops such as watermelons, grapes, figs, lentils and peas, and spices like coriander and cumin. Poultry and meat are also shown on the table in the second wall painting.

Does anyone remember the McDonalds near the British Museum that used to have the Egyptian style wall paintings of people making hamburgers? Used to be an integral part of my childhood visits
Hi! I hope you are faring well.
I found out that PLU is voting on eradicating The Classics altogether and moving Scandinavian Studies/Nordic Studies to a minor only. This disturbs myself and other alumni greatly. Where will the classicist be to teach the philosophy , Ancient Greek, Latin, etc.? A group of us hope to endow a chair for The Classics such as was done for Norwegian, in order to keep an important curriculum present at PLU.
If you have any ideas or know of anyone who would be willing to assist in this endeavor, any assistance is appreciated.
I hope you have a wonderful day!
