August in Saxons Calendar

August in Saxons Calendar

August was by the Saxons called "Arn-monath," or "Barn-monath," meaning harvest month. The instruments which appear in the engraving do not seem to differ much from those used at the present day. To the left appears a man sounding a horn, with a spear in his right hand. Whether he is superintending the labourers, or is one of a hunting party entering the field, it is hard to decide. The sheaves are being lifted by a fork into a cart, or wagon, of tolerably good construction.
