Iron Age Celtic Roundhouse: Building the Timber Frame Foundation | Bushcraft Project (PART 2)

We start work building the iron age celtic roundhouse shelter. Merchandise: https://taofficial.com/ In part 2 of this bushcraft project we dig foundation holes for the vertical posts that we collected in part 1. We bury the posts primitive style and compact them down with a stick and using the clay that we dug up to make the hole. The posts are buried about 15-18 inches into the ground. We burnt the ends of the logs to make them more rot-resistant.
We cooked up a duck stew over the fire in a cast iron dutch oven. Whilst the food was cooking over the fire we sourced some wood for beams. We took the bark off the logs using the drawknife and then notched them using the axe. Originally we had planned to put a hole in each vertical post with the auger, and then peg the beams in. However, we soon realised this would make our roof rafters uneven. So instead we made notches with an axe and angled the logs so that they would sit flush on the posts. In episode 3 we will peg these in with wood pegs and then finish the rest of the foundation frame of the bushcraft shelter.
