History and Types of Wheelbarrow
|This Barrow is a flatbed type with a box built above the bed/handles. It also fits the rustic stereotype of a wooden wheelbarow : A glutton, a book of hours (PML M.1175, fol. 191r), c. 1525-1530 Bruges, Belgium|
|This image from around 1250 A.d shows both a "handbarrow" or stretcher and a Wheelbarrow. (Vitae Offarum, Trinity College Library, Dublin MS 177|

I intend to make a couple of Wheelbarrows, providing I can find someone to take them to festival for me. Hopefully I will have a post detailing my decisions regarding style, material and design and then another showing construction. Hopefully!
I will also be consulting this site quite a bit Building a 16th Century wheelbarrow
