Roman Tools, Hoards and Catalogues - Crispianus - 06-10-2015

Thought a thread on tools would be a good idea specifically dealing with large catalogues and specific hoards of tools from the Roman era.....

So to start:
An old Catalogue that contains drawings of "mostly Roman" tools although its likely some are medieval see page 257 on its fairly extensive... wood, leather and metal working tools as well as agriculture is covered...

"Catalogue illustré du Musée des antiquités nationales au château de Saint-Germain-en-Laye 1926"

Hoards that contain substantial numbers of tools:
"Late Roman tool finds from Celje, Gradišče at Zbelovska gora and Sv. Pavel above Vrtovin (Slovenia)"

"A Hoard of Late Roman Metalwork from Belokopitovo, Shumen district."

Great idea, especially as I get deeper in to any single craft like woodworking. I think Vindolanda had a catalogue of tool finds, but I don't think I have the book which may be out of print.

Crispianus, could you please change the topic title to "Roman Tools, Hoards and Catalogues"
This will make it easier for future search by members to find the thread again. Also, I was quite confused reading the title... ;-)
Thanks.


Roman Tools, Hoards and Catalogues - Crispianus - 06-15-2015

Quite a lot of tools in:
Das Römerkastell Saalburg bei Homburg vor der Höhe, Jacobi 1897

Vol I text with many illustrations, Vol II Illustrations/tables, tools include wood, metal and leather etc
https://archive.org/search.php?query=saalburg%20AND%20mediatype%3Atexts%20AND%20subject%3A%22Saalburg%20%28Hesse-Nassau%29%22

Christian K. corrected by the miracle of science and the sudden appearance of an edit button..... ;-)
