Biomolecular archaeologist Patrick McGovern tells the compelling story of humanity’s ingenious, intoxicating quest for the perfect drink. Following a tantalizing trail of archaeological, chemical, artistic, and textual clues, he reveals what we now know about how humans created and enjoyed fermented beverages across cultures. McGovern, who has collaborated on his research with the Freer Gallery of Art and the Natural History Museum, explores a provocative hypothesis about the integral role fermented beverages have played in human biological and cultural development. McGovern is scientific director of the Biomolecular Archaeology Laboratory for Cuisine, Fermented Beverages, and Health at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology.moreless
