From the ladies of the Medieval Still Room:
Tongs were another indispensable tool in both the house and the workshop throughout the Medieval period – much as they are today. They are listed in workshop and household inventories and are depicted in detailled manuscripts throughout the medievel period for holding, retrieving or working a wide variety of items such as metals, food, glass and containers under adverse conditions.
