about

The illustrated Slow Tech manual will interest historians and re-enactors, parents managing their children's screen time, and young adults looking for mindful and practical escapes from the digital age.

Featuring topics such as building bread ovens, making clay pots in a bonfire, felling and processing trees, cooking on open fires, blacksmithing, beer making, wattle and daubing, this book is a combination of the dangerous book for boys and a practical manual of experimental archaeology and historical research. Highly readable and hugely practical, the book is either armchair reading or a valuable guide to getting your hands dirty and creating something useful as you discover the art of slow technology. Light a fire without matches and cook a meal on it. Weave a basket, build a bread oven in your back garden and brew your own beer. Go camping in the wild, build a shelter, catch fish without a rod, and teach your kids how to knap flint. Whether you decide to try to make your own forge in the garden, carve a wooden spoon, build a dry-stone wall, or process your own salt, you will be reconnecting with your own practical abilities and creative impulses.
