Published a new post at the Kalmar County blog today

What is this bronze tool? is a question I ask on the Kalmar County Museum blog (see the second picture – the post is in Swedish). The last few weeks I’ve recataloging finds from a 2003 excavation at Hossmo church. One of the artifacts puzzled me a bit, I recognized it but could really find it in my memory. After a while I found a similar find from the ancient fortress Eketorp on Öland, where it is described as a possible tool to make threads probably from the middle ages.

If you either have an English name for it or different interpretation please write a comment 🙂
