Paula Sunshine, WATTLE AND DAUB
Ref: CHT9346


Wattle and daub can be seen today as the infill between the timbers of timber-framed buildings throughout England. It is one of the oldest building methods in the world used, originally in the most primitive of shelters. Sticks and studs (wattles) and clay and earth (daub). Daub has been used to coat the wattle and fill gaps and keep out rain in winter and heat in the summer and has been known to last for more than 500 years. The author explains some of the mysteries surrounding this material.
