Iron Age Roundhouse

City outskirts

In 2007, Calverton Villager Grahame Watson decided to create his very own Iron-age 'roundhouse' - the project would take 170 days over 18 months to complete.

Made from wattle and daub, the structure measured an incredible 25 foot high with a width of 32 feet. The wattle and daub consists of two parts sandy soil, one part horse manure and a sprinkling of horse hair, all mixed together with hay and straw. All of which was concocted by Grahame using a trial and error process.
