Building an Iron Age Roundhouse: Perimeter Walls | Bushcraft Shelter (PART 5)

We continue the bushcraft iron age roundhouse build. This episode is focusing on building the perimeter walls of the celtic bushcraft shelter. We used an ancient building technique for the walls known as "wattle". Despite being a traditional craft that is hundreds of years old, it is still practised in Britain to this day. We used hazel sticks woven into each other to make the fence panels. This Celtic roundhouse is inspired by ancient celts who occupied Britain over 1,500 years ago. In the south of Britain they used this wattle technique along with a "daub" mix of clay, straw and animal dung. At the end of the episode we cook fresh organic vegetables harvested from Mike’s vegetable garden, along with a whole chicken roasted in a dutch oven. Thank you for watching the episode, and be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss part 6 where we begin to clay the walls!
