The Miller in Eighteenth-century Virginia
An Account of Mills & the Craft of Milling, as Well as A Description of the Windmill Near the Palace in WilliamsburgBook - 2004
Grinding grain is one of the oldest of human chores but the construction of wind and water mills removed it from hard labor of humans and animals. Colonial Williamsburg's reconstructed Robertson's Windmill ("about a simple a machine as one could devise,") is faithfully and fully described, as are all aspects of the miller's craft.
