  8.b Grinding mill
     

 

 

This device was made of a rotating stone structure in the form of a double funnel. Inside the lower funnel was inserted a fixed grinding stone. The grains poured into the upper funnel were reduced to flour by grinding them between the internal moving structures and the fixed grinding stone. The mill was operated by man- or animal-power.
