News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Absolutely stunning. When you think about it, these tools were at least 2,000 years old when they were discovered.

The Isle of Harty hoard.

A metal workers 'kit' from the late Bronze Age, discovered c. 1873.
The objects include three bronze moulds, together with the axes cast from them, a mould and cast of a wood working gouge, two hammers, a whetstone, and some ingots of copper.

The objects are now in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford.
