Her Breath Smelt of Mint and Myrrh – Floor Talk

August 5 @ 2:00 am4:30 pm

$5.00 – $10.00

THE ABBEY MUSEUM OF ART AND ARCHAEOLOGY PRESENTS:

Her Breath Smelt of Mint and Myrrh

How do the modern standards of beauty compare to those of the Middle Ages? Does your daily beauty routine measure up? Join the Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology for a myth-busting and sweet-smelling Floor Talk that explores the perfumes, scented cosmetics, mouthwashes and hygiene products of the Middle Ages.

The Abbey Museum’s own Education Manager, Mr Damien Fegan not only busts the myth that the people of the Middle Ages smelt terrible and all had rotten teeth, but presents the argument that the beauty products of the Middle Ages aren’t actually that far removed from those of modern times! In fact: did you know that there is not a single beauty product on the market today that did not have a Middle Ages equivalent?

We’ve had minty breath for hundreds of years!

DATE:   Saturday 5th August

TIME:   2.00pm Start

PLACE:   Abbey Museum Hall at the Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology
