Pierre Wind is busy both days with insect snacks from prehistoric times, Roman dishes for young and old, to medieval roasts.

If you lived in the Mesolithic, you were mainly engaged in hunting and gathering. You ate fish, small game, nuts and roots of shrubs or fruits. In Archeon, the hunter-gatherers are roasting a wild boar. Taste the ancient fish in the hunter-gatherer's pit and bake your own bread on a stick at the first farmers.

In Roman times snacks were prepared on the street for the busy Roman on the way. Taste the delicious culinary delights that the Romans brought to our country, or have a chat with the wine merchant who promotes his wares. Taste the same food and drink consumed by senators 2,000 years ago. Enjoy Libum (Roman bread) with moretum (Roman herb cheese) and Roman poffertjes.

In the Middle Ages, the daily fare was a stew or porridge, supplemented with fresh bread from the baker and of course beer from the Friars Minor Monastery! But the well-to-do bourgeoisie wants a bit more luxury, they prefer to eat a dinner with several courses, where it is almost as important that the food looks expensive as it tastes good! Visit the medieval bakery for a delicacy or enjoy a buckwheat pancake from the beekeeper.
