Archaeological Finds

On occasion we unearth more than vegetables when we plow the field, but these items were all found deep in the herb garden. The large picture is of a reasonably heavy pulley, but the other two are my main fascination. A cobbler’s last and lasting stand. The lasting stand was broken in two pieces (one of which has gone missing again), each found separately, as was the last itself.

The last is for a child sized shoe, but I suppose if you could only afford one, or your children were particularly hard on shoes, this would be the size to have.
