Wattle and daub

While some of the group were on stone shovelling duty, the rest experimented with wattle work on the Roman and Saxon buildings. Interesting solutions for how to wattle a triangular space, and the age old question of ‘wattle up or wattle down’. The solutions will be displayed in a local art gallery under the title ‘Stick, earth, wood – elemental creation’. Later, mince pies were burnt on a fire in the roundhouse in a misguided tribute to King Alfred. What larks Pip!
