Daub was made up of a mixture
of things, often 80% clay, 10% straw or horse hair and 10% cow
or horse muck (to help it all stick together)
The daub was pressed on by hand
to build up a layer. This was then covered with a lime plaster.
The lime plaster was often coloured.
Later on in Tudor times, people
used bricks as an infill, but these were very expensive.
