115. EARTH BUILDING: FROM THE IRON AGE TO MODERN INTERIOR DESIGN

Discover what "earth building" actually means and how this ancient technique still fascinates architects and designers today. Often used in reconstructions of ancient houses, earth, clay or chalk construction is far from being primitive, dirty, impractical, damp, and has been used for millennia all around the world, in all climates and cultures, and especially in Wiltshire and Dorset! Comparing Iron Age and historical examples of walls, plasters and paints to 21st century counterparts, from traditional cottages to ultra modern eco interior design, Caroline Nicolay discusses the huge card that archaeology could play in our modern quest for sustainable, natural, efficient and comfortable housing.
