Making Charcoal ~ by WoodlandsTV

By woodlandstv

Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

Matthew Lloyd from Survival School Bristol guides us through the process of making charcoal in an octagonal shaped kiln. He talks about the history of this traditional process and even tells us the origin of the one legged stool - a tool designed by charcoal burners to stop them from falling asleep whilst watching over the fire.
