Bringing Tastes Of History to life...

We are historical interpreters and presenters, based in North Staffordshire, who teach in schools and colleges, deliver living history demonstrations at events across Great Britain, and carry out reconstructive or experimental archaeology to better understand life in the past.

Our expert culinary advice and specialist knowledge has helped such clients as the BBC, Channel 4's Time Team, English Heritage, stately homes, local authorities and museums, the Museum of London and The British Museum.

We hope to share the results of our passion with you and present tastes of history in our own unique way.

Bringing history to life, using accurately researched costumes and artefacts, is exciting and inspiring for both children and adults alike.  The opportunity to handle everyday objects and learn how they were used makes history more accessible and connect us with the past.  We find using museum quality objects, together with role playing and storytellingactively works to involve children in learning - all while having great FUN!

School days can be tailored to fit with your plans; no two days have to be the same.  Presentations can be given to a single group, for the whole day, or shorter programmes can be delivered to several groups in the course of a day.

Education is a key to stimulating interest in history.  In the case of food, eating and dining throughout history can teach us much about our ancestors, and ourselves.

Our cooking demonstrations, at both public and private events, provide a place for all to learn about 2,000 years of food, the diets of rich and poor, cooking techniques, how to prepare dishes faithful to recipes from different historical periods, and an opportunity to sample the result!

Each demonstration becomes a mini cooking class with a chance for everyone to learn something new.  In fact, we positively encourage questions from our audience.
