A fascinating new history of the windmill, from its origins in hand quern-grinding of corn, the inception of the post mill in the twelfth century, the arrival of the smock and tower mills in the sixteenth century, the multi-bladed farm mill of the nineteenth century, to the huge power-generating turbines of the twentieth century. At each stage the builders were using the latest techniques that kept the windmill at the forefront of technology.
