Antique Roman or Pre-roman rotating handmill (Mola Manuaria)
Rotating hand mills were most pobably already known in pre-Roman times.Our replica is based on roman originals but can of course be used for medieval re-enactment as well. The hand mill has two discodial carved stones, which can be coneccted with a steel rod in the center.Between the two millstones you put the grain.The upper stone now can be rotated by the wooden hand-grip and the mill now grinds the grain into flour. As the stones also have a certain grit, the flour should not used for food preparation.It is a historical prop, anyway a great gear to show the ancient and medieval way of grinding.
