Stakes in the ground

The start of the build is finally here and the volunteers have arrived on site raring to go. Our first job was to remove the top soil from where each building will be. The top soil is holding on to a lot of water making the site very muddy and so removing the soil will enable us to move around the buildings easier.

The topsoil removed from around where the buildings will sit.

After setting out the buildings in the same alignment as they were from the archaeological evidence we began to drive stakes in. These will form the woven hazel walls that will eventually be daubed.
