Wampanoag Kitchen

At least that's what I'm calling it... a Wampanoag Kitchen.  The Wampanoag are the Indians that the first settlers met when they arrived at Plymouth, MA.  The Plimouth Plantation has a Wampanoag camp set up so you can see how they lived back at that time.  This is a shot of what I call their "kitchen".  I'm not sure that's what they called it, but this is the spot where the Wampanoag made and cooked food.  They skinned animals here, cooked over a fire and made other things.  For instance, in the foreground on the left you can see a wooden stick popping out of what looks like a tree trunk.  This is where they made cornmeal.  And, in the pot over the fire, they were cooking bean soup.  It actually looked pretty good when we were there.  I think everyone ate well back in the day and with Thanksgiving coming up, I'm sure all now will eat well!  At least that's what we hope!
