Function
 
Acquisition
The small plow, the first tool a human being ever used to dig the ground, was found in the Bronze Age and academics regard it as one of the key agricultural implements. Even though the small plow became extinct a long time ago the museum knew how it was used to cultivate rough land or land so small that oxen could not get through, which lead to a search of a small plow in Heuksando in the middle of the 1980s to add one to the collection of the Museum.
