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!
