Dr Peggy Brunache, Archaeologist & Culinary Historian

“My PhD dissertation explored the slave cuisine based on excavations in Guadeloupe. I’ve also dug in West Africa and all across the US Eastern Seaboard as a professional field archaeologist. I have versatile communication skills which I use to articulate complicated theoretical or methodological ideas, for students and non-scholars alike. In addition to archaeology and history, I am passionate about many subjects including food, music and dance. I’m a naturally an energetic person with a strong, quirky personality and unshockable sense of humour.” Peggy completed the Ford Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship for historical archaeology with Northern Kentucky University.
