Spotted on our holiday...

...In a run-down museum which was meant to have a Celtic site on the land.

This was in one of the barns which had old tractors and harvesting equipment. I guess the re-created Celtic village had been taken down because it was falling apart and wasn't accurate in the first place...something a past land owner had found and cobbled together.
They are trying to raise money to get it set up properly.

Anyway, this machine looked interesting. Perhaps for stitching shoes? you can see a set of shoe shapers on the shelf to the right.

And also in a glass case with things made of bone.


I am not sure if these were found on the site ( the bones of a tall Celtic man were found there) or not. Does make you wonder what you could make with bone yourself!
