wonder: are we certain that there *were* hinges,
at all? It seems to me that a more rustic fence
such as this might simply have a (re)moveable panel,
rather than a 'swinging' gate.
Not in our Period, but I recall reading in the
"Little House" books that Mr. Ingalls made leather
hinges, as they could not afford metal 'boughten'
Another option - the pivot hinge - can be found here:
The fashioning and use of hinge pins can be found here
(scroll down to pages 10-13):
AND if you are on Facebook, I can point you to a clip
from the Luttrell Psalter film that briefly shows a
woven fence that may have what you are seeking.
