Duke of Edinburgh Iron Age Service

Ruth and her fellow mates in Duke of Edinburgh Scheme from the Irvine DofE Group completed a service project this week at Marthrown of Mabie They were to assist in making an authentic replica of a Celtic Iron Age Roundhouse- what they didn't realise was that authentic ment fresh cow dung which they would have to mix with hay with thier feet and then they plastered it on the outside walls of the roundhouse with thier hands.

 In November... In Scotland... very very wet and smelly.

 As part of the fun they got to sleep in the outhouse for a true iron age experience. complete with a dry composting loo and urinal
