Subject: RE: Origins: When/where did 'Peg and Awl' turn up?
Thread creep alert - I was just reminded of where I saw some actual pegs.

I saw a program on TV about someone looking for the graves of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

They found some falling apart remnants of boots with the heels attached using wooden pegs, and some bits of bones, but the cemetary was still in use and had been dug over and over again, so the rest of them might have been there - just rather spread out.

They showed the layers of leather and how they were put together - having little else to show.
