17th century village tour – Architecture research

http://www.plimoth.org/what-see-do/17th-century-english-village I watched a video from this website about a 17th century village the re-enacts the people, and the environment of what it would be like to love there. Although it was England, many of the customs and housing will apply to my american town. The video picked apart the houses, how they were made, and why. Showing the class differences and weathering techniques.  It was interesting to note that the houses were mostly made by sticks and clay. In my models i’ll keep in mind the layers of clay + stick installation and oak tiled walls.

Here is the video:
