This paper presents some of the first results of the project Rethinking Roman Nutrition: Assessing the nutritional biochemistry and stable isotope chemistry of archaeobotanical cereals and pulses from Roman Egypt, a collaboration between the Free University Brussels and the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor. The project aims to obtain nutritional data from ancient seeds so as to establish a baseline for nutritional values of food in antiquity as there is overwhelming evidence that modern data are not representative for the past.
