Mystery Artifact of the Week

I feel almost as if I am playing, "Can You Top This?" because last week's entry (the dental key a.k.a. tooth puller) was bordering on the grotesque. This week's mystery artifact is much less so, and more practical. See if you can decide what these conical pieces of metal are.

If you come to the museum there are some on display. I would heartily recommend doing that this Sunday afternoon. We'll be hosting the Middletown String Band in the Mabery Gelvin Botanical Garden from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. that day! Bring a blanket, or a lawn chair and come to the Gazebo. Stop in the museum beforehand and see if you can find the Mystery Artifact!

Have a wonderful weekend.

  1. This probably isn't what they're really called, but my guess would be horseshoe cleats. They screw into the bottom of a horseshoe to give the horse better traction
