I am an early technology specialist, conservation carpenter and master thatcher using researched techniques and materials for experimental archaeology purposes for a third of a century. I have built around thirty thatched roundhouses increasingly using homegrown materials processed by hand as well as more up to date methods. Historical reconstruction is my passion and I have a lot of experience to share. I have been teaching early construction techniques now for around fifteen years and work alongside archaeologists with interpretation and advice on appropriate building technologies from the Bronze Age to 19th century handmade thatched welsh cottages made with materials from the landscape and lots in-between.
