From: Guide to the collection of Welsh Bygones by Iorweth Peate “During harvest time at morning and at afternoon, meals are served on the field. Food boxes of different kinds are used for this purpose, and small kegs or costrels hung on the back for carrying cider or a similar drink were very common”
