Hospitality History Index
I don't think there are enough pages or ink available at this time to write the known history of hotels, food and drinks. Don't even think about the many tales there could be written about hospitality since ancient times.
The expectation to eat good food has been a pleasure since early men. To find a place to rest, a safe spot to sleep has been always on every travelers mind.
The attempt to provide both, safe lodging and excellent food, day after day, in modern times can be found in the full service hotel.
What I attempt to do is to draw a picture in your, the reader's mind, coloring some of the stages when accommodation and food drastically changed over the ages.
If you have information you want to add to the Hospitality History Index feel free to e-mail such to firstname.lastname@example.org and I shall gladly consider to add such.
