Han Dynasty Wheel with Jonathan Bosworth
March 22, 4th Tuesday, 7:30 pm
Wolbach Farm, 18 Wolbach Rd, Sudbury, MA 01776
Jonathan Bosworth will be talking about the Han dynasty reproduction wheel he has made. It was produced based on study of a stone carving from the Eastern Han dynasty, 200 BC-ca25 AD. This wheel has multiple spindles, uses an unusual ‘oar-lock’ mechanism, and is the first known use of a belt-drive. Please join Jonathan for this exciting lecture.
