Agricultural Tools

The collection of the museum is consisted by agricultural tools from the previous century, representative samples of pre-industrial societies. These tools have been used by farmers in order to cultivate the fields and to process the wheat.  We also encounter wooden and metallic tools for plowing purposes such as plough, for harvest scythes and sickles, for threshing the threshing board, for winnowing the pitchforks. The grain was then passed through a sieve to bring the separation process to an end.
