Having seen no settlement for hours of fast-paced walk, we later regretted for not asking about what the lady was doing there.
We didn’t see a person for hours before passing her either. She probably was from a side valley waiting for something.
When we asked she was kind enough to carry on spinning (remaining at the same spot). Spinning
was done in the Stone Age and spindles like this one are known from early Neolithic.
