This is my third post on our studies of Ancient Mesopotamia three years ago.  In this post I will be sharing photos of our Mesopotamia night with lots of Mesopotamia food, as well as our visit to the British Museum in London.

Field Trip

At the end of our studies we try to go on some sort of field trip.  As Mesopotamia, by its very geography, is out of reach for us, we traveled up to the British Museum in London:

Mesopotamia Food

Then we had an evening of trying out lots of food from Mesopotamia.  The children, of course, had to dress up and play their part as Mesopotamia people:

Lots of unusual food:
