What were their jobs?

Why are these different to nowadays?
These things are very different to nowadays because today there is machinery E.G Tractors, Drones and Combines. Weavers that still make things today are still making hand made things, but some weaved things are made by machines. Blacksmiths are still used today and it is done by hand. But machines have been developed to do the sort if things that blacksmiths do by hand. Potters are still doing it today and that is by moulding the pot by hand. There bread was made by grinding cereal grains, such as wheat, millet or barley, into flour, then kneading it with a liquid, perhaps adding yeast to make the dough rise and lighten, and finally baking. It is basically the same way that we make it today but we use electric ovens in stead of stone cave ovens.
