Old Trades: The Basket Weaver
© All Rights Reserved
The new week is here so we must all get back to work as we have been doing for centuries. Work wouldn't be the way we know it now, if it weren't for those medieval craftsmen who developed their skill at so many different trades in the Middle Ages. Man was no longer a serf bowing before the landowner but a laborer, a freeman and in doing so he developed his intellect, his culture and came out of the darkness. Here is this basket weaver at the Medieval Fair in Súria near Barcelona. I have dealt with this famous market in previous posts. Feel free to explore them using Blogger labels right below.
