This week, Lily (and her dog) build what she calls a stone-age hut. (She also uses it as a sweat lodge.) It’s a survival shelter that’s the same shape as many modern pop-up tents but takes a lot more effort to make. You’re going to need an axe, that’s for sure. And I’m not sure the stone-age builders would have used string, they’re more likely to have used rushes, grasses, sinews or leather.
But this is a great forest hideaway. And it looks like a great day’s activity in the countryside. (If I had to guess there’s a fox been through there. Her dog is loving rolling in the dirt and most dogs I know treat fox poop like it’s Chanel No. 5!)
