Plants Cropping

Known since Neolithic times, agriculture is the factor that requires sedentary life of human communities going together with the other achievements as Neolithic pottery and weaving. Tools and machinery held by the House Of Bania that illustrate this ancient occupation, with many implications in the spiritual life, are built mostly of wood, perishable material, and less of the metal. Therefore, their age does not exceed 150-200 years, but they are reproducing their old forms.

From the patrimony section of the tools, of special value is the large wooden plow with the moldboard and the metal plow, used especially for grubbing up and for which, to be set in motion, there were necessary 3 and 4 pairs of cattle. This type of plow is related to practice of intensive agricultural from the early nineteenth century and the enhanced use of land provided by the Oltenia Plain.

Agricultural inventory is filled with weeds harrows, sickles, scythes, sandstones' and sandstones' of wood frames and horns beef, big hoes, the wooden and iron forks. A feature of these tools is the ornamentation with different geometrical patterns, especially the wooden ceramic frames and the metal hoes. Once collected, the harvest was stored in woven baskets much wider inside.

The grinder of stone on a wooden pedestal and the soil test used to make cereal products, end the string of objects related to agriculture. A special interest is for the grinder-mill, because of the technical novelties it has compared to the traditional mill, and, namely, through adding the gear wheels system engaging the movement of the two stones and the wooden basket.
