MILL

Long before the internal combustion engine there were many types of mills (engines) or better said devices to rotate things to perform work. Terms used include:

Horse mill - these poor guys went roundandround their entire lives to pump water or grind grain
Water mill - grain and textiles
Wind mill - pump water
