Ancient Tools & Equipment

Exquisite tools which were produced in ancient times using sophisticated techniques and materials abound in museums around the world. Ranging from medical tools and tweezers to gaming pieces,trade weights and whetstone sockets, we offer a vast range of timeless artefacts upon which members of ancient civilisations were reliant during everyday life. Roman horse spurs exhibited interesting stepped designs, whereas agricultural tools such as sickles and scythes were often plainer looking, but essential to survival. We offer a range of ancient tools and equipment, of practical (as well as decorative) use. Each artefact provides a unique insight into the lived experience of our ancestors across a number of periods and civilisations.
