Wattle and daub is possibly one of the oldest building methods in the world. Sticks (wattle) and clay or earth (daub) have long been used to fill in the gaps in the wooden framework to keep out wind and rain, the cold in winter, and the heat during the summer. Wattle and daub can be seen today as in-fill panels between the timbers of ancient timber-framed buildings throughout Britain.
