model of Senussi plough
Model of Senussi plough.
This is a representative type of the implement in use prior to the Christian Era, some of which may still be in use in the less developed countries. The early farming tools were often constructed from a suitably shaped branch of a tree, probably fitted with an ox-horn. These ploughs are unable to turn a furrow slice, but stirred the soil in a manner resembling the modern cultivator tine.
This is modeled from a plough seen in use on the borders of the Libyan Desert early 20th century.
