Fishbourne excavation, 1960's

Fishbourne Roman Palace has a recent-ish wheelbarrow history.

In the display, which is largely about the discovery, excavation and preservation of the site, there is a photo of lots of archeologists and volunteers with wheelbarrows. In the display there is some graphic art of a man using a wheelbarrow, and another of some of the workers resting (not very comfortably, unless they were really tired and the metal was cool).

That last photo is fun. I've brought it here the day I was there, with as story about wheelbarrows and my dad. Fishbourne, July 17, 2013.
