Wattle and daub / Rab and Dab
- A system used to in-fill panels in
timber framed structures, comprising of
vertical staves of oak, interwoven with fine flexible branches or twigs, usually of hazel, and
daubed with a mixture of mud, dung and chopped straw.
Referred to in some areas as "rab and dab". Wattle eventually gave way to lath.
