Primitive Technology: New Area Starting Over Video

The guy from Primitive Technology bought some land and is starting over from scratch. From what I understand, he is somewhere in or near Australia? I love that he does not talk. English accents across the world make it difficult to understand local dialects.

For those of you who do not know who Primitive Technology is, he is a guy who does Primitive Technology stuff in a jungle / wilderness setting. He does everything from build a hut, to building a forge. This is probably the best Primitive Technology YouTube channel I have ever seen.

Most YouTube channels that deal with wilderness survival use some kind of modern technology, such as a modern knife. This guy does everything from the stone age.

From a comment he posted on the video:

I bought a new property to shoot primitive technology videos on. The new area is dense tropical rainforest with a permanent creek. Starting completely from scratch, my first project was to build a simple dome hut and make a fire. First, I took some wood, Abroma mollis, for fire sticks. I knapped a small stone blade and used it to strip the fire sicks. Palm fibre was then taken for the tinder. The fire stick kit was then placed under a palm leaf to keep it out of the rain.

I wonder how many times this process was repeated over the millennia?  How many times did hunter gather groups move from one location to another, and have a new village set up in a matter of hours?

Special thank you to the guy at Primitive Technology for the excellent video.  Keep up the great work.

It will be interesting to see what he does in the new area.
