Medieval Furniture: Plans and Instructions for Historical Reproductions

These links show different types of wheelbarrows and hand-carts in use in the Middle Ages and Renaissance – as opposed to a handbarrow, which is basically a wheelbarrow without a wheel.

Additional information on medieval wheelbarrows can be found at NewYorkCarver.com and The Medieval Technology Pages, or the Florilegium.

There is also information about constructing a 16th Century Wheelbarrow or a 16th Century German Wheelbarrow.
