An overview of mead’s beginnings in Europe: what we know about honey and honey-based alcohol up to and in period, what we think we can say (and what we cannot say) about mead as used in rituals, referenced in literature and mythology, and evidenced in archaeology. A lot of the references date in prehistory, but I guarantee we will not venture past 1600 AD.
