An exhibit opens this week in London, England which provides evidence as to the drinking habits of the locals from around 1300 AD:
Experts have uncovered evidence that 12th century Londoners drank ale by the gallon, starting at breakfast time, due to poor quality drinking water. Exhibits at the Museum of London, including a selection of old Toby jugs, depict tubby men with beer bellies. London's many drinking dens entertained 'immoderate quaffing by fools', according to a writer of the time.Here is the website for the museum's new exhibit. That would be an interesting place for a correspondent to visit. Any takers?
