Bushcraft Shelters of the Iron Age!

Bushcraft Shelters of the Iron Age!

Here are six incredible bushcraft shelters from the Iron Age of Britain. The largest is 50ft and is made with a timber frame of oak, and rafters of alder. The roof is thatched with water reed and the walls are wattle and daub. This giant roundhouse can be found at Butser Ancient Farm in the south of England. It was inspired by the "Little Woodbury" archeology discovery that was famously excavated in the 1930’s on the Salisbury Plains. This recreation is the largest roundhouse I have ever seen. You really need to see it in person to witness how majestic this build is!
