Historical Turf Construction - Daniel Postma - BS056

Daniel Postma is  natural builder who has come to it from an interesting background - Archeology. Daniel is a specialist in traditional turf construction and learnt by doing as an experimental archaeologist.

Archaeo Build specialises in the interaction between past and present forms of natural building. We bring together skills and understanding from archaeology, vernacular building conservation and modern-day natural building.

It's fascinating to learn the intricacies about this seemingly very basic way of building. Then learning the reasons for it's demise!
