'Primitive Technology' - Interesting Youtube Channel
« on: June 28, 2015, 10:06:52 PM »
I'm gonna keep an eye on this guy's channel.  He builds primitive shelters/tools using nothing but, yup... primitive tools. He uploads pretty frequently considering how involved some of his projects are. I wonder if he's an anthropology student or something.  Here's the link:

And here's a few videos:







Enjoy!

I watched all of them that were available after the stick & mud hut build, too.  Good stuff! :thumbsup:

  Am I missing something?

  Is this channel a month old with only 5 videos...and 90K subscribers?

Nope I don't think you are missing anything.  In two months he uploads 5 excellently produced videos and has more subs than many of the heavy hitters in youtube bushcraft land.  Most guys it takes months of trial and error to produce just one video that gets 100K hits let alone 3.5M like his first video did.  I don't want to call the guy out because I don't know him but I would like to hear his background.  He did not become a master primitive reenactor and a videographer overnight.

A bump to one of the threads for the primitive technology blog guy if you have checked up on him lately.

Thanks for  for posting that Unknown.  I saw the post a couple of months back on the hut but didn't follow through and watch the rest of them.

I've had his spot saved on YouTube, so the new ones just automatically show up in my 'suggested' list.  I guess just forgot to bring the new one to everyone's attention. :P

Thanks, Unknown!
