I know its a little out of your usual time period so I hope you dont mind
but I found your site whilst searching the web for people and organisations
who might be interested in this project. If you  could pass this e-mail in
to general circulation, post it on your notice board or even put a link on
your site we would be very grateful.


Thank you for your time,
Cliff Eastabrook

A HISTORICAL BUILDING CHALLENGE THAT YOU CAN BE PART OF


RIDICULOUS PROJECTS.ORG in association with the CHILTERN OPEN AIR MUSEUM
offer you the chance to take part in the "challenge of a lifetime!" Are you
up to it?  Can you build a house in a week?  And not just any house!  Can
you learn ancient building skills and using only traditional tools and
authentic materials create an ANGLO-SAXON HOUSE that would have been in use
more than a thousand years ago.

IF THE ANSWER TO ALL THIS IS MAYBE - OR EVEN YES! - THEN READ ON.


We're offering you the chance to join a unique 14 day course - this summer -
in the first week of which you'll learn all the required skills from the
leading experts in Treewrighting, Thatching,  Wattle, Daubing, pottery and
nail making. Your challenge is then to apply these skills against the clock
and BUILD A SAXON HOUSE IN A WEEK.

Your efforts will be filmed by a professional video crew for later broadcast
and will be reported daily on our live web site

BE PART OF THIS EXCITING PROJECT


To find out more, visit our web site at http://www.RidiculousProjects.Org

The Course begins this summer on Sunday 29th July and finishes on Sunday
12th August and will be held at the Chiltern Open Air Museum in Chalfont St
Giles in Buckinghamshire, England.  All the materials required for the
course and the building of the house will be found from the museum's 45 acre
site.

The Chiltern Open Air Museum was established 25 years ago. It is a
registered charity, which specialises in rescuing important threatened
buildings from across the wider Chilterns area.  It also recreates examples
of buildings that no longer exist in the area.  In its early years,  the
museum established an Iron Age enclosure,  but as yet has no examples of the
Saxon period.  RIDICULOUS PROJECTS.ORG was established to put this right.

The Saxon house built during this course has a long-term future, it will
enable visitors to the museum to learn more about Saxon life in the
Chilterns for years to come  NOW THAT'S SOMETHING TO BE PROUD OF!
