Period House in East Suffolk, England. Built in the late 1400s.  You can still see inside the walls the wooden beams from the half-timber (or timber framing) method of building! So cool!
To create framed structures, early carpenters used heavy timber jointed together with various joint methods. They filled the spaces between the timbers with wattle and daub (mud or animal dung that fills woven branches or slats), loam (sand, silt and clay mixture), bricks or rubble.
