Yesterday’s Mystery Object was a Shoulder Yoke.
It is made of wood and two iron hooks hang off ropes tied to the yoke. A shoulder yoke is used for carrying buckets of water. The yoke would be placed on the shoulders, and rest behind the neck. Then, two buckets of water would be hung from the hooks to be carried. This made it much easier to carry. The water would be brought from a well or a stream, to a house or farm building to be used as there was no running water available in buildings at the time.
