Does anyone recognize the host? Tony Robinson = Baldrick (from the classic Blackadder comedy series). Here he is in all his thick-skulled glory:
@beer foot Thanks! Hard to believe ...
Good old Tony Robinson - a national treasure ;)
It's not just how the Saxons made charcoal, but entire Europe since antiquity well into the modern age.
@Uac_mitun_ahau I have seen large charcoal making areas outside cities in Tunisia. I doubt the Saxons were making so little at one time. Not worth the wait. Many people believe in error that our forefathers were less intellgent than we are.
100 hours to make so little? i guess only the rich were buying that. normal ppl probably settled for good dry wood.
next theyll make a saxophone
That job would have sucked. But hey, there were no "I wont do nothing"-office-jobs back then, uh?
Charcoal is easy to make. You exclude oxygen in a vented container, and heat till resin/ steam is gone. Mine takes just a couple hours, not days. It's kind of weird because it almost leaves no ash when its finished.
Fascinating, looks like a pain in the ass.
The bloke in the hat--is that a Yorkshire accent? Not important really, I'm just curious.
I don't think so, it's not very strong. Certainly from up North somewhere.
@cleetusawreetus, Yes dude " Yorkshire born Yorkshire bred strong in arm thick in head ". :)
That is true charcoal and you can get a welding heat in a charcoal fire.
BBQ charcoal is not the same thing at all.
Charcoal is a mixture of char and coal. You can still get real char for BBQ.
You are misinformed.
What they made is charcoal, they called it charcoal as does anyone else who's knows about the stuff because that is what it is.

@Dave556 It looks like Mexican charcoal which you can find in a few stores in the southwest U.S.
100 hours! No thanks. I'd rather have been a shrubber.
OMG ITS BALDRICK!!
I am glad I was born in the 20th century and went to school.
So that's what happened to our forests!
I have a cunning plan: put wood all around, cover with earth and turf and set fire inside. That'll get me out of the war!
If they were really smart, they could have build another enclosure over the mound and smoked their fish or women.
Actually charcoal is char and coal mixed.
That is real char which you can get for BBQ.
It is the best.
@moefugger Vast majority on sale here is Charred wood...not coal
charcoal is char and coal mixed.
That's BBQ charcoal.
@moefugger Our local charcoal is vines wood ("pieds de vignes" and "sarments de vignes"), give a very different taste to the meat.
Then it is char.
