Stonewall building

An interesting half-demonstration / half-lecture on the history of stonewall building. The expert, Kevin Gardner tells an interesting historical story on the surprisingly fascinating topic of fencing (!) (and enclosure, land rights, forestry management and all the rest…) while building a minature stone wall.

Throughout the talk, Kevin builds an minature model stonewall with two five gallon buckets of stones. A patient and one would imagine, pretty rewarding craft. (Skip ahead to 2 mins to get started, questions etc after 60 mins)
