The main frame of the roundhouse would have been made of upright timbers, which were interwoven with coppiced wood - usually hazel, oak, ash or pollarded willow - to make wattle walls.

All of the domestic life would have occurred within the roundhouse.

A new pair of publications from the Latvian National Culture Centre: a 2017 wall calendar and a planner with photos of authentic replicas of 7th-14th century garb representing all the chiefdoms of Late Iron Age Latvia.

Women's clothing from the swamps in the Huldremose in Denmark-unfortunately, the date is "the iron age"... (L) garment is wool, woven... "Cape" was probably lamb...
