The Early Christian city and house

Agricultural implements
Agricultural implements

These typical well-preserved agricultural iron implements provide useful information on the activities of urban dwellers and this period's economy. They were cast and hammered in iron, a hard, durable metal particularly suited for this kind of object. There are two types of pickaxes: a small one and a larger one with two blades (a curved rectangular blade and a triangular one), both of which are pierced to fit a wooden handle. The two sickles have a projection near the bottom, which was fitted with a wooden handle. The small, rectangular hammer also had a wooden handle.
