Online Posts and Articles on the History of Wine: #2

Bodleian Library, University of Oxford

“The Blue grape | Ripe September 27”. Bodleian Library, University of Oxford [4]

It is hard to believe its time for another blog carnival.  For those who missed out please read Online Posts and Articles on the History of Wine: #1.  This month, the articles about the History of Wine were dominated by grape remains found down in a well in Chianti and the isotope analysis of King Richard III’s bones.  I have included links to several of the original papers even though a few were published before August.  Beyond those two subjects there is plenty to read from Stalin’s “plebian luxury” all the way back to an ancient Middle East cellar.  Please help support and encourage research into the History of Wine by sharing this post.  Until the end of September you may find more history of wine at:
