Tent Project

Date Started - 01/20/2007
Date Completed - 02/17/2007

Because no known tents from any Celtic area exist, this tent is based (loosely) on a Norse "A" frame style. It is interesting to note, that although no Celtic tents have survived several tent pegs from Iron Age Ireland have been found.

The tent measures 10' x 6' with a 6' height at the peak.

The poles are simply lashed together with handmade rope. The canvas also very simply ties to the poles with ties.

With just two extra poles and two more ropes, the tent quickly converts into a demo area.
