Interwoven hazel rods (wattle), coated with a mixture of clay, straw, dung, and other materials (daub) used structurally to form a wall or screen. Wattle and daub was used for, among other things, house walls, ovens, and simple pottery kilns. It is often revealed archaeologically by the impressions of wattle‐work in burnt daub. Early examples of this type of construction date back to at least the Mesolithic.
