Beneath a pounding tilt hammer, an implement is
Forged by an apprentice from a white-hot billet
Of steel. Thus begins a 250-year history.
The implement is a spade. It is passed down
Generations of men and women and is witness to
Events as significant as the forging of nations, and as
Intense as tilling the soil for survival.
A powerfully told story of people over the
Ages, their triumphs and their tragedies,
Their loves and their jealousies.
A thrilling journey, illuminated by the triumph
Of the human spirit over adversity.
