Sickle - Brelland

This artifact is a sickle, it is 15.25 inches in length and is in a curved shape. It has a rough texture and is made out of iron. They are actually quite similar to the sickles we have today. A sickle, by definition is “a short-handled farming tool with a semicircular blade, used for cutting grain, lopping, or trimming”. This sickle might have been meaningful to the owner because it might’ve been a tool used commonly by the person. Finding a sickle at Fort Vancouver could tell us about the technology used in the time period. We can determine what tools they might’ve used and how technology for farming has changed over the generations. This might also tell us about the owner’s economical class at Fort Vancouver. Lower class citizens at the fort would usually be workers who had to do hard labor for their earn. Since sickles would be used by farmers we can assume the owner of this item might have been working at one of Fort Vancouver’s gardens.
