Historic UK exposed by heatwave

Surprising how stuff shrank in the heat. The long wooden shaft on my fourche à bêcher got very wobbly, although it was earlier a perfect fit. After a couple of days rain it was snug tight again, although no rain had touched it.

Surprising what just humidity (or lack of it) does, same with my small axe handle!

Or with my own articultations ! Even I’m not a prehistoric site yet, I hope …
