: Brewery and bakery tomb model. This tomb group is attached by pegs to a wooden base which is in two parts, one plank is longer than the other. Currently there are four figures attached to the base. One is leaning over a vat (roughly hollowed cylinder) and would have held a stick to stir it with. Another is leaning forwards; one is standing nearby. The fourth is kneeling and should be facing the pile of loaves which are being cooked over a fire (it looks like a brown pine cone). In addition there is a loose item, straight with curved ends and two indents and drilled holes, which is unlikely to be part of this model. With this is a standing man, feet together, a red beer vat with white top and two quern stones, rectangular with a notch on the top.
