Plummets (204, 1595, unknown 1)


204 is from the Parker Collection, 1595 is from Shattuck Farm, third unknown. These are plummets. The collection includes a number of plummets of all sizes, used to weigh down fishing nets. We can guess that fishing was an important food source given the number of ponds and rivers, especially the Merrimack River and the nearby Atlantic Ocean.
