Friendship, Trade, & Feast

From 1607-1622, the English and Powhatan people had moments of what the English called “Thanksgiving” characterized by trade, gift giving, and the sharing of food and drink. Several colonial English and Powhatan Indian recipes will be faithfully recreated by Henricus interpreters and volunteers. Visitors will observe how food was prepared and examine typical items that would have been exchanged between the two cultures. If you enjoy the smell of wood fires, iron-pot cooking over hot coals, and clay oven bread baking, come to our annual autumn event!

In addition to historical programming, beer will be available for purchase from Dancing Kilt Brewery as part of our History by the Pint series starting at noon.
