Town Hall Seattle says
From the first domesticated chicken 10,000 years ago, to the high number of urban chicken farms in Seattle, this fowl has been at the forefront of social, ethical, and environmental discussions for years. In Why Did the Chicken Cross the World?, veteran science writer Andrew Lawler (contributing editor of Archaeology magazine) offers a glimpse at one of humanity’s oldest friends and food sources. Lawler will detail their influence throughout time (Louis Pasteur’s work on cholera, recent proof of a connection to their ancestor T. Rex) and offer insight into this previously underlooked creature. He’ll describe how this bird has transcended nations, culture, religion, and cuisine to become the most eaten–and dominant–domesticated animal that exists today.
