One of the patterns she loves and uses the most is the anchor!

While today the anchor has a certain look (the Admiralty pattern), it wasn’t always like this! As quoted from Wiki  ” The earliest anchors were probably rocks, and many rock anchors have been found dating from at least the Bronze Age Pre-European Maori waka (canoes) used one or more hollowed stones, tied with flax ropes, as anchors. Many modern moorings still rely on a large rock as the primary element of their design. However, using pure mass to resist the forces of a storm only works well as a permanent mooring; a large enough rock would be nearly impossible to move to a new location.

The ancient Greeks used baskets of stones, large sacks filled with sand, and wooden logs filled with lead. According to Apollonius Rhodius and Stephen of Byzabtium , anchors were formed of stone, and Athenaeus states that they were also sometimes made of wood. Such anchors held the vessel merely by their weight and by their friction along the bottom. Iron was afterwards introduced for the construction of anchors, and an improvement was made by forming them with teeth, or “flukes”, to fasten themselves into the bottom.”
