Building a Roundhouse: Clay Walls with Bare Hands | Bushcraft Shelter (PART 6)



We build the walls of the iron age bushcraft roundhouse by hand using a clay and straw mix that sets like concrete when it dries. This ancient building technique is known as wattle and daub and was used thousands of years ago by celtic tribes who lived in roundhouses. The walls of these iron age roundhouses were built with sticks that were woven together to form a solid structure. The clay is then mixed with straw, water (and animal dung) to form a mix that is easy to mould into the gaps of the wattle sticks. This then sets hard after a few weeks. We clay the whole exterior walls of the celtic roundhouse. Thanks for watching!
