Floor Talk: Of Mint and Myrrh
August 5, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Join the Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology for an in-depth look into the beauty standards of the Middle Ages! Did you know that every beauty product found in shops today had a Medieval equivalent?
Perfumes, mouthwashes, scented cosmetics and hygiene products – How does your beauty regime measure up to that of the Middle Ages?
This floor talk not only busts the myth that the people of the Middle Ages all had rotten teeth and smelt awful, but presents the idea that modern beauty products aren’t that far removed from those of our ancestors! We’ve had minty breath for hundreds of years!
Bookings for this floor talk are essential as places are limited. Tickets cost: $5 for members and $10 for non-members and member’s guests.
For more bookings and further information, please contact the Abbey Museum on: 07 5495 1652.
