From Irish Elk Steak to Imported Avocado with Chris Murphy

The comeback of the Stone Age Health Regime

Venue: Eureka House - A82 DX47

More than 10,000 years ago the Blackwater and Boyne Valleys became home to some of Ireland’s first post-Ice Age hunter-gatherers, with this locale inhabited from that time to this.

Over the many millennia since those first few hardy pioneers, diet and lifestyle have changed dramatically, for better and worse; and yet, everything the hunter-gatherers ate is now available on a supermarket shelf, apart from the Giant Elk steak, long since extinct.

As we face into the immense global challenges of growing populations, pollution and temperature rises, join world weary traveller and local historian Chris Murphy as he discusses the diet and lifestyle history of north Meath’s natives; looking at the subtle and sudden changes over the last ten millennia, when and why they happened, and why a growing number of people are today looking to our earliest forbearers for health advice.
