Probably too many pottery drinking vessels though, not enough wooden drinking bowls.... (old disproportionally too many/too few problem)
Good point, to be honest I've only really got Tewkes as my basis of comparison and while I saw a few this year it's probably not representative.

There are way too many though, and not enough full length split hoes (almost none in fact, everyone seems to go for full joined hose instead).
Again its the too many/too few thing.
I've corrected my wardrobe this year to exchange joined hose to full split hoes for most occasions.
Good call, I'm getting new joined hose made and then I'm going to make my old joined hose into split. I don't think I've seen anyone with proper 15th century split hose.
