The Archaeological Hunt for the Origins of Viniculture

What makes the perfect glass of wine? We’ll spend this hour with Dr. Patrick McGovern, Scientific Director of the Penn Museum’s Biomolecular Archaeology Laboratory for Cuisine, Fermented Beverages, and Health. His Dallas Museum of Art Boshell Family Lecture, “Uncorking the Past: The Archaeological and Chemical Hunt for the Origins of Viniculture,” takes place this evening.
