A Sin and A Secret: Tobacco Culture of the 18th Century

Welcome back to another "A Sin and A Secret." Mix yourself a drink based on a colonial recipe and then curl with a completely true, completely salacious story. Enjoy a new #ASinAndASecret post every week. Read more in the series here.



Something to Depend On: Tobacco Culture(s) of the 18th Century


We're again switching up this week's A Sin and A Secret to rebroadcast a lecture on tobacco culture given by Paul Lovelace, Director of Agriculture at the Accokeek Foundation's National Colonial Farm.


This lecture was originally given on Feb 17, 2018 as part of our annual winter lecture series.

Sign Up Today! Drinks with the Director


Instead of a drink recipe this week, save the date for Drinks with the Director on Saturday, July 4, 12:30 - 2:30pm. Rod Cofield, London Town's executive director, will play bartender, serving up punch and cider while sharing the important role of taverns in the 17th and 18th centuries. Enjoy a relaxed afternoon of drinks and conversation on taverns, archaeology, and early America. Learn more and sign up today.
