The next item in our series? A trowel.
Professional: Stacy Barber, Mesoamerican archaeologist.
Pro Tool: Marshalltown trowel.
Why it’s a Pro Tool: “Archaeologists — we respect history and tradition. The Marshalltown has been employed by archaeologists in the field since at least the early 20th century. That’s the brand that the greats — the archaeologists who inspired ‘Indiana Jones’ — they would have used Marshalltown trowels.”
