A building technique in which walls were made by plastering mud (daub, possibly with sand and plant fibers) over a lattice of branches and sticks (wattle). Interwoven twigs or thin split timbers were used. Though the wattle does not normally survive, its imprint is frequently preserved on the daub. It was used for, among other things, house walls, ovens, hurdles, fencing, and simple pottery kilns.
